We have a sweet cherry tree in our back garden - there is a flicker that we
NEVER see except when those cherries are ripe.  Dunno how it knows when to
come- not even sure if it is the same bird!  We picked and pitted our fill
this year and then had fun watching the birds clean the rest off - mainly
the ones I couldn't reach from the deck or ladder.  
	As for squirrels - Ray has plants on our deck and squirrels are so bad to
dig them up - burying nuts, we guess.  anyway, I got him some chicken wire
(green, florist) and he put that over the top.  If you do it early on, can
cover the entire top of the pot. Barb in Missouri
