Visual Pest Bird Scaring (Live and Dummy Predator Birds)
Dummy Predator Birds, such as life sized plastic replicas of North American Eagle Owls, and Flying Falcons are often used. These do not work when just left in place on a ledge as is often done. In these circumstances, pest birds will soon become accustomed to them and ignore or use them as a perch etc. However these Dummy Predator Birds can be useful as part of a wider scaring strategy incorporating an Audible Pest Bird Scaring System and frequent resiting of the Dummy Predator Bird to help avoid the pest birds from becoming habituated to them.
Another Visual Deterrent is to fly a Live Predator Birds, such as a Harris Hawk, to scare pest birds away from infested areas. Many people are impressed with the apparently immediate effect of this form of pest bird deterrent, but this is only due to the immediate presence of the Predator Bird.
The use of Live Predator Birds can be effective. However, requires to be carried out in a structured repetitive manor as when the Predator Bird is no longer present the pest birds will quickly return. For the best results the use of Live Predator Birds should be carried out only as part of a wider reaching programme of bird deterrent measures such as Audible Pest Bird Scaring and / or Proofing.
