Rhubarb demands rich well fed soil and good moisture in summer chloemoody.   


check your soil.....is it poor?  


Do you feed it?


A thick mulch in autumn or early spring will help.......a mixture of pelleted chicken manure/ dried cow manure/ well rotted farnyard manure plus fish blood and bone

Blackbirds I suspect Suewoo.....if there is any gap at all at soil level they will get in there.
