The realistic raptor in flight convinces prey birds that there is a predator in the area, and they leave for a safer area. The decoy is suspended on a mount and floats in the breeze, simulating the flight of a real raptor.
Effective on smaller prey birds including sparrows, swallows, starlings, robins, shorebirds, waterfowl, pigeons, and gulls.
Adding audio deterrents further confuses and frightens birds, making all products more effective. Additional confusion reduces bird habituation. Visual deterrents are especially effective when moved often and combined with audio deterrents like propane Cannons (#1000) and Bird Gard units (#1804). Although durable, kite poles should be stored during heavy windstorms to extend their life.
