!@#$! Starlings!

Sally599 | May 29, 2009 09:35 AM

So I got all excited about planting seeds this year and they just got set out over the last couple of weeks (its cold up here). Anyway, there is a pair of starlings nesting on the roof of my balcony/fire escape and they are stealing the seedlings whole. At first it was just a squash and a zucchini, but then I noticed a cucumber missing and one snapped off a whole tomato plant right before my eyes. I don't have any netting available and I probably won't have time to get any this weekend. Any advice to thwart these guys? Right now I put a few skewers in and some shiny Christmas balls that might scare them away for a day or two.
