Garden Owl Bird Repeller
I love this owl
For more than two years this guy has chased off a pesky woodpecker determined to build a nest in the wood siding of my condo, as well as a pair of turkey buzzards that seem to see my upper deck as their preferred nesting aerie. Who knows what else it has kept at bay? (I don't see any tigers roaming around....)
Just hang it up on a heavy fishing line (I also attached mine to a fishing line swivel to reduce twisting stress on the cord) and let the breeze and sun bring it to life. It seems to dazzle all the varmints. (Unfortunately, it also keeps away songbirds.)

This has helped with a woodpecker problem, birds were pecking on the cedar sided house and causing significant damage. Since hanging a couple of these on a Shepard's hook near where the woodpeckers liked to peck, have had minimal damage.

birds fear owls
Shiny and easy to place in trees to scare birds away from cherries and other fruit. Since we lost our small crop of cherries last year, these owls are helping to scare birds away before they eat all the cherries before we humans get a chance to taste the fruit. They sparkle and shine and the cost was more than reasonable plus... we do not have to feed the owl. i purchased 3 of these - one for each of my cherry trees.

I ordered 3 of the Garden Owls because an issue with woodpeckers on my five young Live Oaks. Since putting out just two of these, I have not had any more issues with the woodpeckers. I used one of the owls in my carport that is enclosed on 3 sides. Even with ALL the birds that in previous years had made nests in the carport, I have not had any nests and not a single bird dropping on my car...YEA!!! I am pleased with this product.

ALIEN IN TOWN
even the brave kiskadee makes it clear, alien in town, and i am not going to make that touchdown. this product helps to protect fruit and grains crops and can witstand variable weather conditions. birds are overly worried about its presence and stay at a distance. a farmers watch partner, a must for your farm or kitchen garden.

We had a schizoid robin who kept fying in our new sliding door every day for days on end. After 20 to 40 tries each day, he would sit at the bottom of the door
and leave his discust at the bottom of the door. We were going to purchase one
of the owls that has a sensor in it and turns its head and makes sound. We thought we give this a try and and not have to deal with the batteries. After hanging the owl, no more schizoid robin. We are going to hang one out front by
the bay window to keep the birds from flying into it.

Doesn't work but is a good yard ornament
I bought one to protect grape vines. i saw a bird sitting on the mounting post and it made a nest eight feet away.
However, I like them as a yard ornament and ordered two more.

Garden Owl Bird Repeller
This does not work. The only way I can keep the birds away from my front entry is to chase them away each evening as they begin to roost.

The owl repeller is made very well and looks like it will keep the birds away from flying into the boat hanger. However, I lost one for the swivel that comes with the owl broke and lost the owl somewhere in the water. That was the only problem with it.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT. THE BIRDS FLY TO THE OWL AND LAND ON IT'S HEAD. I MOVED THE OWL TO DIFFERENT LOCATION IN THE YARD TO HAVE THE SAME RESULTS.
