Decoy Strawberry Rocks to Deter Bird Burglars

About: I love comics manga anime and super heroes but most of all video games

These painted strawberry rocks will fool pesky birds from stealing the real strawberries from your garden. The birds will be attracted to the realistically painted berries. Once the birds get fed up with the rocks, they'll leave your strawberries alone.
