Wind-Driven Bird ScarerThe wind powers this new-style bird deter-rent that's equipped with bird "eyes" and mirrors.
The "Flashing Hawkeye" consists of an aerofoil-shaped PVC board with eyes on one side and the image of a hawk on the other side, and a series of mirrors under it. The board and mirrors mount on top of a post and revolve in the wind on sealed bearings. "The mirrors provide a flash that can be seen at great distances so it protects large acreages," says the manufacturer. "They even work at night under a full moon. They resemble the flash from a lighthouse and will light up nearby trees like a search light."
Sells for $184.
