So i swear I never noticed these CD's in the trees before today. So I assume someone hung them today. I pulled into my cousins driveway as I am petsitting for her. Well there are CD's hanging bystring in the trees. I can't think of them being there before, I would think I would notice them as I have been over at night time.But when I drove out of the driveway they reflected off them,and I noticed them. But I don't remember this before. So why are there CD's hanging int he trees?.

I can think of two possible reasons for them to be hanging in the trees. One reason would be to be sun catchers or decorations of a sort. The second reason would be to frighten birds and other wildlife . People will sometimes hand them around gardens and fruit trees.

Well they are hung on about 10 trees that line the driveway.I don't believe any are fruit trees. I would assume I saw them before but I don't think they were there.All I can think of someone is playing a joke or my other cousin who lives across the road with a mental illness.

That is rather interesting. I think that would be pretty if done tastefully.

They look neat, but also looks weird on about 10 trees lining the driveway.

@ricki_911 Yeah, that's crazy. Are they public trees?

@T_gray No, on private property and their property is about 100 acres. But these trees line the driveway, and you need to drive up the driveway a fair amount to get there. I should take a picture tomorrow in the daylight.

Not sure I guess there could be a number of reason they them to be in the tree. Maybe someone decided it would be fun, maybe scare birds away. Hopefully you may find the answer.

I am not sure sure, but they come home today. They are lined on my cousins driveway across the road. She has a lot of mental illnesses so I assume she just forgot her meds.

I went today and they were all up their driveway, and plus my cousins across the road. She has a lot of mental illness problems so I assume that is why.
