Not for birds !!

Posted by Devi (Chennai, India) on 2 June 2016 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

My neighbor's Rice grains drying in the sun on the terrace. The open pot placed here discourages crows from coming for a few pecks.This is something new I learned from her.

When I dry something, I keep a small mirror or a piece of black cloth and crows certainly stay away:))

Some interesting tips here . . I can hand-feed crows at my local park but they will take no food from the hand on which I have a wristwatch !

2 Jun 2016 8:21am

@Ronnie 2¢: Does it have a black strap? Or is it metal that reflects light ? Nice tip!

I like this top down view and interesting idea to keep the crows away.

@Stephen: Thank you Stephen. I keep a tiny mirror or keep a long piece of black cloth and they never come near the things I dry in the sun :)

That is really interesting. I like the idea about the mirror. I am sure that they would be scared of that! A beautiful image. Wonderful color and textures.
