Face it, unless you stop them with an effective bird deterrent like Garden Netting, pest birds are going to attack your berries. If you're growing blackberries, chances are, warblers, orioles, mockingbirds and robins will lay claim to your precious crop. Everyone it seems is on the blueberry bandwagon for the healthy benefits they provide. But be warned, a number of pest birds will beat you to these ripening berriesbirds like finches, robins, blue jays and humming birds. They'll strip your plants bare. If you're growing raspberries, you might be on the lookout for robins, blue jays, even red-headed woodpeckers.

What these bird pests don't eat, they leave half eaten on the ground. And while they're eating your berries, they often leave droppings on the berries a branch or two below, contaminating them with any of 60 known diseases.
