Re: tent cat/ birds

I'm no bird expert, but the birds here (mourning doves, cardinals,  
chickadees, sparrows) seem more spoiled than anything else.  They are  feeder-hoppers.  
I never have to worry about them going after my tomatoes,  rasberries, apples 
or peaches.  They really aren't that ambitious.   They never even try to 
touch them.  I have never had to buy bird netting  for any of my fruits or 
The only birds that I have ever seen picking at any of my plants are the  
goldfinches that arrive when the sunflowers bloom.  They eat the sunflower  
seeds.  They don't go near the feeders.  That's pretty much it.
I'm not sure what kind of caterpillars they were, but I think they were the  
eastern tent caterpillars.
