How did Robinson keep the birds from eating his corn

Robinson shot a number of the foul he caught stealing his corn and hung them as a warning. The foul left his part of the island and never returned.
I fired again, and killed three of them. This was what I wished for; so I took them up, and served them as we serve notorious thieves in England—hanged them in chains, for a terror to others. It is impossible to imagine that this should have such an effect as it had, for the fowls would not only not come at the corn, but, in short, they forsook all that part of the island, and I could never see a bird near the place as long as my scarecrows hung there.
