Our gorgeous sweet cherry tree is again loaded with plump, green cherries.

We're watching to see if the Baltimore orioles that usually show up will once again plague us. Ye gods, how they can eat those green cherries...!

We tried netting, but the tree is simply too big to do that.

Next, I bought a BB gun and fired a few times at them (never hitting them), before realizing that wounding such lovely birds would be tragic -- and maybe even illegal.

A dummy owl, maybe?

Anyway, we watch and wait and hope for some cherries soon!
