Bower Birds are a native bird and their habit of preferring to scavenge for food under shrubs and trees makes them difficult to scare with a hawk because often they cannot see the Hawk from underneath the bush.
You see the way the hawk Bird Scarer works is that when the birds see the Hawk hovering above them they think it is a real Hawk and so flee the area. However if they can’t see the Hawk they wont be afraid of it. In this situation a hawk will work provided the Bower Birds can see the Hawk profile above them from where they are landing.
You usually find that the Bower Birds are flying in from nearby bush or trees and that is the side of your crop that you need to protect the most. If you can stop them entering the crop on that one or maybe two sides you can protect and save the entire crop.
All you need to do is to install the Hawk high above the areas where the birds are doing the damage or at the edge of your garden beds. By protecting the edge of the garden you can protect the entire garden.
There are three methods. (see installation page) The best method is to use strong fishing line or thin fencing wire to suspend the hawk between tall trees, poles etc. You will obtain excellent results using this method. The Hawk is unique because it is a full size imitation hawk made of durable weatherproof plastic.
As birds instinctively fear the Hawk they are also scared to come within sight of the profile of this replica of a hovering Hawk.
