Pumkin and Zucchini being eaten

Centereach, NY

I have a hard time finding out what is eating our Zucchini and Pumpkins.

Any answer on what this might be and how to prevent it would be greatly appreciated.

I just joined and I know it is late...but.... I had this also. It was the Lesser Goldfinches! They love the leaves. Luckily it wasn't that big of a deal, they seem to concentrate on one leaf at a time and I don't think that it hurt the plant. They also went after the Strawberry leaves, without much damage, but the Stellar Jays watched the Goldfinches and did it also. Bird Netting is a problem for squash, it stops the pollinators.
