Birds Eating My Marigolds

Every year I plant marigolds around my vegetable garden. This year the birds have eaten the flowers off the plants just before they fully bloom. We have a fairly dry spring this year. The years before they have consumed only a few flowers, not all of them. I don't get it. Does someone have an answer please?

Try tying strips of tin foil on stakes around the plants. Make sure the stakes - which can be small are a little higher than the plants. The movements of the foil in the breeze and the reflection from light are usually enough to scare off most birds. This will NOT work for crows or ravens.
