Detering birds from eating my strawberry plants.

How can I deter the birds from eating my strawberry plants? I have many bird feeders but they still seem to prefer my strawberries. I live in a Chicago Suburb. Thank you.

You can cover your strawberry plants with netting or floating row covers, rolling them back when you harvest. Or you can use bird scare devices such as inflatable owls, aluminum foil pie tins, or mylar tape strips.
