Easy, low cost garden bird control

Spring garden planting has begun.  Soon there will be tomatoes on the vine and strawberries ready to be picked.  What about those birds, waiting for your fruits and veggies to get ripe and then swoop in and devour them?  Here is a quick and dirty bird scarer.
All that you need is a pie pan, some string or twine, a stake and a nail. Put a nail near the top of the stake. Poke a hole in the pie pan.  Tie the string to the pie pan on one end and to the nail on the other.  Drive the stake in the ground.  This pie pan scarer will move in the wind, flashing reflective light all around and also banging against the post.  The ultimate low-cost bird deterrent for your garden.
