THE OWL IS MADE from recycled materials and is a humane way to scare away birds from your property.
The head swivels by way of the solar panel on the back of the head. The solar powered owl moves its head every two minutes, stopping to look in a different direction each time; it is about 1 1/2 ft tall, very life-like in looks and size.
There is nothing to do to get it started, just remove the tag and stand it in the yard.
It is recommended to mount it on a stake to give it some height, but you can also fill the bottom of it full of sand or dirt through the opening to give it some weight.
The owl is so lifelike reviewers pets thought it was real. You may want to familiarise pets with the owl if they are disturbed by it.
Will also deter chipmunks
Mixed reports against hawks, ducks and squirrels.
It can help if you change the position of the owl every so often
The solar powered owl is reported as lasting longer than a year.
If it falls or breaks, the head will snap back on and will continue working.
