|Pecked Fig. Nikon D7000|
Despite our mass fig picking session, there are still many ripening.
The blackbirds however have taken to eating 1/3 of a fig, and then moving onto the next one. The result is a tree with lots of trashed figs on them.
I have tried picking off the pecked figs and placing them in heap for the blackbirds to finish, but they do not seem to get the hint.
