Decapitated flowers...Ruined Purpurea/Psittacina pitchers...Flytraps dug out and left to dry in the sun...Sounds familiar ?
I got over it all...But lately this crow pair has taken a new interest in my plants. When I saw them pecking at the psittacina, at first I thought they were just causing mischief as usual. But nope, this was for a "worthy cause". Apparently they bring bones, meat, bread etc and bury them in the pots. Here's what they were trying to hide this time:
Maybe this was the reason all along and I just noticed it, I don't know but I just can't stand my flytraps being destroyed anymore; especially after getting them through a whole winter.

Actually I think it's kinda ugly. Today I learnt a new technique from a neighbour though. He told me to use a fishing line and tie it around like this net but looser. Apparently birds can't see the fishing line until it's too late and they don't visit again.
