    I saw it in this video and i think its fun. [​IMG]

    It seems to be a plastic owl looking ornament that makes some birds aggrassive and want to chase it away.
    Would that keep other birds away in most cases? Arent the birds more clever than that?

    If anyone has one i would love to hear more about it

    I bought one like that a few years ago. As soon as I put it up, the Sparrows used it for their playground. Scary, huh?

    We have one and it keeps the hawks away. Not the sparrows though.

    I heard you can use them for squirrels but I don't know if they actually work...

    Doesn't keep hawks or squirrells away here and we even used to move it around all the time. Now it just sits on top of the coop like a weather vane. [​IMG]

    Birds are funny.

    So was one of the comments about that video "I can't believe you think bird droppings on your furniture is so big a problem you had to resort to aggrivating wild birds.

    They were here before you, sunshine, so don't be so arrogant as to presume that you can terrorise birds simply because your chair gets a spot. Cover the furniture if it's such a problem for god's sake.

    That is pathetic."

    heh heh heh...weirdo.
