If you have CDs or DVDs laying around that you no longer use, that are scratched or broken, or received free from somewhere, those discs could actually be useful in your garden to scare of birds!
To help keep birds and animals out of the garden, you can use the CD disks you are always getting in the mail from AOL, Earthlink, etc. You can use just one, but it is better to use two glued together with the shiny side out.
This tip doubles as many things. Decoration as well as scarecrow. Take those DVD/CDs you were planning on tossing aside for whatever reason.

Use CDs to scare away the birds from your berries and crops. Take wire and make a U shaped piece, put it through the hole in the CD.
