Nanking cherry: Early bloomer

Nanking cherry bloom

Nanking cherries bloom on our farm before any other fruiting plants...which is pretty but tends to mean we don't get any fruit from the bushes.

Of course, the lack of fruit could also be due to the location off the beaten path. Do late freezes nip incipient fruits or do birds nibble the cherries before I notice them? Maybe one of these days I'll be astute enough to find out....
