Thanks for responding, ladies .

Hazel, I have no idea where to get old Christmas trees now. There is a dense cedar hedge behind the taller trees but I'm guessing it's obviously not good enough to provide adequate protection. I actually planted 5 Pine trees but it'll take another 10 years or so before they'll be of any help .

I also feed lots of squirrels and rabbits (and, unintentionally, mice too ) so I'm a little worried about them finding food if I stop altogether. I guess putting nuts and grains under the cedars only wouldn't help ?

Melinda, after getting over the shock of seeing the remains of the dead bird, I got pretty angry too. The in me was contemplating making a slingshot . But I couldn't do that .
