Francelle  --  This is a beauty, and so is the one posted just before it.  Since birds are your problem (and thank goodness they apparently have enough else to eat here) you might want to consider small temporary bird-net shields over the seedlings you want most to protect.  If your ground isn't too hard. you could stick metal rods around the plant and just drape the netting over it, or you could construct a wooden frame of 1-inch lumber.  Mocking birds are tough customers, though.  Some years ago, I had a nice cherry tree.  As soon as it bore fruit, the birds attacked and stripped it.  The next year, I covered the entire tree with netting.  Then I watched one day as a mocking bird on the ground picked at the netting until it could squeeze under it.  A bluejay which had been watching followed; then a robin.  At that point, I interrupted their party.  Moral: Pin down the netting.   --  Griff
