Re: Using CDs in the garden - problems?

My neighbor has some CDs hanging in his garden and they look very pretty on summer nights when the garden lights reflect off them. My problem is I don't WANT to scare any birds away. We feed and water them in hopes of them coming into our garden.

You both need to be on the same page or it's going to be impossible to convince teenagers who are accustomed to tv...
