You can also use onld scratched up CD's.
Also for a long range plan, birds are supposed to like mulberis better than cherries. So if you plant a mulberry tree, they will go after them and leave the cherries alone, for the most part. Mulberries are also very good, they make a great pie.

Don't know how big your trees are but is netting an option? Another thing I've heard (but don't know if it works) is hanging alu foil pie plates in the trees. The reflection and movement is supposed to scare the birds away.

I finally got the gophers under control, now I have bunnies but I can handle them. I finally have cherries on my trees and the birds are already there. I'll use all ideas except harming anything, I can't do that. I have never had so many problems. First the weather and now every insect and animal is coming to my yard. Anyway Ideas about keeping some fruit for myself would be helpful. Thanks
