    Hi guys, I was wondering if you have any tips on how to stop the local native birds attacking my ducklings when I take them for walks in my yard. Id really hate to have to keep them locked up but the attacks are quiet scary for me and my babies.

    What kind of birds? Hanging pie plates or cd's can sometimes help to deter hawks.

    Wondering if there is some kind of portable scarecrow that might help. Such a tough situation!

    I have used netting above play areas to discourage harassment from above.
