Did anyone ever have sparrow eating capsicum leaves? My capsicum plants are 3 weeks old and sparrows have started feasting on the leaves 🙁

I was so happy with the health of my plants.

Please help!!!

I clearly saw the sparrows plucking bits and eating it. What did you do to stop the pigeons?

I moved the affected plants inside my greenhouse. Guess what, once I saw a pigeon inside my greenhouse trying to escape out. Not sure how it got in. Chicken netting would help.

Or feed the pigeons/sparrow, they wont come back to bitter pepper leaves after that.. i guess.
