Crows

Recommended Posts

In the last 2 weeks, since i have put birds in my breeding room, i have a pair of crows that come and sit on the roof looking hungrily at the budgies inside - The birds are completely safe as there are wire mesh doors and no way the crows can get at the birds, but their presence puts my budgies on edge.

 

They are starting on my aviary birds too who get terrified and flap frantically when ever the crows swoop by....

 

How can i get rid of these nasty black birds.

You need to deter them Have you got any barb wire? Or use bird netting on top make sure that it isn't

taunt other wise they will land on it - Needs to be able to flap in the wind ---

 

Or you could get the kids to make a scare crow :D ???

Or... tinsel, the bladder form cask wine (inflated), old CD'd... anything that will scare them from hanging around. (Just be careful as what ever you use may scare your birds too.

What about a fake owl?

Some buildings put up strands of really thin wire/nylon/string on their rooves to prevent birds from landing. You could try that. Or those mini-electric fences you can put around goldfish ponds

I think i will start with the shinny paper, and work from there. I bet the kids would LOVE to build a scare crow :P

Be careful if you go for the thin Nylon as sooo many wild birds are seen with fishing line wrapped around their feet ;)

 

Maes is spot on with the cask wine - All the ochard and olive farmers have them up in their trees
