The Strawberry Chronicles

This is my second year with a small garden, last year was mostly tomatoes and bell peppers. This year I wanted to grow strawberries, I did a bunch of research including reading from this forum but apparently still am not doing something right ... but as soon as a berry gets ripe it is quickly tunnel through my nice ripe berry leaving me nothing but the leftovers. I hung the berries up in hopes of keeping slugs out so I am hoping you guys can help me identify and resolve what it is eating my out of the fruits of my labor. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Birds. Your #6 picture is dead-on for birds. You need to net the fruits so the birds can't peck through the netting to get at the fruit.
