My roses are covered every year with Japanese Beetles and I am puzzled as
to why my yard birds never are seen taking any of these for food. They are
right there for the picking but I have never seen a bird on one of the
bushes. I was fortunate this year when the young European Starlings
devoured an infestation of European Sawfly larvae on a Mugo pine. Anyone
else have any information or stories about birds and garden pests?
