Rethinking those "bird scaring" owls

Oh, dear. I knew birds weren't fooled for long by those cheesy plastic fake owls people set out, but this is ridiculous! Check out this story from the Daily Mail: "Fake 'bird-scaring' owl becomes home for family of swallows."


  1. That's a terrific picture! I've never heard of those silly plastic owls being effective.

  2. What a "Hoot" it didn't keep the swallows away at all.
