Arum berry eaters?

After reading Mike's experience with his A. italicums, I went out today and
saw that a lot of my just-ripening berries were disappearing.

I immediately thought of the squirrels, who are the usual "blamees" for
anything bad that happens in the garden, but later on when I walked out, I
disturbed a flock of blackbirds trying to harvest the berries that I had not

I might also add that this flock has been hanging around for days, and last
week took a perverse glee in removing about 20 white labels from pots in the
propagation area. They've never done this before, but I've started writing
the names on the pots as of now.
