Starlings

“Starling nest is near every hut; on the fence or in the birch tree, and so low that you can reach it with hand. Starlings here are pleased with common love and even cats  do not touch them.”
“Across Siberia” by Anton Chekhov

What a charming idyll!

But my mistress, if you want to have cherry preserves, think about a bird net to keep starlings off cherry trees.
