Dress Affordable lack decorated items to wear of the cocktail

So, I know we are all usually trying to attract birds to our yards, but do any of you know how to keep birds away temporarily? Cherry season is coming up fast, and the birds (especially robins) like to eat our cherries. Last year they got a lot of them before they were even ripe. I'm thinking of trying a hawk kite on a pole because our back fence is right up against a field and we do see hawks around here, so maybe that will work. Also going to try a net, but the tree is fairly big. Maybe a combination of deterrents? Anyone have suggestions or things that work really well for the robins?
