Disappearing Cherries

Our two pie cherry trees are in need of pruning. They have become too tall for us to harvest all but a third of the cherries that they produced this year. The cherries that we could reach gave us 8 gallons of cherries to put in the freezer. The rest we had to leave for the wildlife to enjoy.

We had been wondering why we were finding small branches broken off of the trees each day. We could see the crows and Stellar jays eating in the trees and the robins eating the fruit that was on the ground.

We laughed at the crows and thought that they were eating so many and grew so heavy that they were breaking the branches, but we were wrong.

This is who was doing it. . .
