Red Balls To Deter Birds From Tomatoes

Birds had always beaten me to my ripe tomatoes, forcing me to pick them green. I found a simple yet effective solution; light-weight, red, plastic balls! When a tomato begins to ripen, hang a red ball directly on the plant next to it (it needs to be very light weight). The bird will peck at the bright red ball instead of the tomato. When you pick the tomato, move the red ball near the next tomato to be picked.

I've been growing tomatoes for several years, I've never heard of birds eating tomatos. Must be some strange birds in Texas. Did you see them do it? Maybe they're getting eaten by tomato worms.
