My CPs are being attacked by birds!
(well ok..one CP and (probably) one bird)
when I got home from work this afternoon there was spagnum moss scattered all over my balcony! and one poor Judith Hindle laying bare-root on the floor...fortunately it appears to have happened recently, so the moss was still damp and the plant roots still had some moss on them, so the plant will survive (this time..)
but the first attack happened a few days ago..just a little moss removed and the pot and plant still intact..but that time the moss on the floor was bone dry! so the danger here is if the bird strikes at say 9am, and I get home at 5pm..well thats plenty of time for a sarracenia to totally dry out!
so far its just the one pot..and im assuming its just one bird..I noticed a sparrow with shifty eyes on my balcony railing a few times lately, he is my main suspect..
So anyone have any tips for keeping birds away?
I have seen those plastic owls with swiveling heads! seems like that would be effective..
my Girlfriend suggested combing her cat and putting cat hair in and around the pots..she uses that to keep moles out of her garden..(how well do birds smell?)
well im just looking for ideas..before there is a CP fatality!
