What kind of birds are they? And, incidentally, what kind of apples?

If they are crows, hang a dead crow from one of the branches, out of reach of cats etc.

Too Funny!!!!


My neighbours used to hang cans off the tree but they may look rather unsightly.
I wonder would hanging old CD's or wind-chimes deter them.
