My concern about birdnetting is this: If it is soft, will the birds get caught in it? While I'm all for protecting my berry crop from the birds, I'm not keen on the idea of birds getting caught in the netting. I've heard some sad tales about people having to remove dead birds from their protective netting before getting to pick their berrie crop. If the netting is stiff enough so that birds could perch on it, but also could leave of their own accord, that would be great. Do you think the netting you are using will protect the berries and the birds??
A valid concern--I have had a bird get a leg caught in this net. I have seen a few birds get under the net and have trouble finding the way out again, but get out unhurt. I'd suggest that net users check the net at least daily for trapped or tangled birds. It may be helpful to be sure the net is tight to the ground so birds don't get underneath and struggle to find the way out again. I have not had a bird get tangled on the outside of the net.
