Bucket-O Blueberries

Here is our first Blueberry picking of the season.  Not a whole lot but not too bad just the same seeing that we only have two bushes.

In years past the birds would eat them before the ripened. The Catbird is the worst of the bunch but I've see Robins help themselves too and I'm sure there are others.

This year I covered both plants with bird netting, which seems to have done the trick.  Although, I need a larger piece of netting as this one doesn't quite cover completely.  As a result I had to free a young Robin that got trapped inside.  When we were away an unlucky Catbird got trapped also, that didn't turn out so well for the bird...
