Grackle Attack


One of the challenges of ‘urban farming’ is that there seems to be great feeding pressure, possibly due to the distance between edible green spaces. A lot of animals live within city limits, and when they find a patch of succulent food, they make short work of it. Got to give it to the grackles, they are smart birds! They figured out that the haskap berries were ready for harvest at our basecamp food forest and cleaned us out! We managed to harvest some for ourselves, but the rest were gone within a day. The hungry birds then turned their attention to the strawberries.
