Thankyou for your enquiry concerning the Hawk Bird Scarer and whether it will scare Indian Mynahs. You will be interested to know that this simple device was originally invented to scare seagulls and cormorants (shags) off boats, yachts and wharves.
Being so successful it was quickly tried in many other situations including Indian Mynahs. In your situation these hawks will work provided the birds can see the Hawk profile above them from where they are roosting……Or you can place the Hawk in a location so as to prevent entry into the enclosed area. You can do this by suspending the Hawk out from the eve.
As your birds go to fly in under the eave, doorway or the enclosed area, when a Hawk is in their flight path or above their flight path they will not run the risk of being attacked by the Hawk. By watching what happens to the birds when you install your Hawk, you will quickly learn whether you need to move the Hawk or invest in an additional one.
You see you may need one Hawk outside the enclosed area and maybe one inside the enclosed area. One proviso is “that if the Indian Mynahs are nesting or have started to nest you will not scare them with this scarer or any other means”. Even removing the nests will still result in the nesting birds returning to the site.
The reason for this is the strong “Mothering instinct” that birds have once a nest site has been chosen. They will defy anything to return to that site and continue nesting. However you can install the hawks before they start to nest you will ï in fact force the Mynahs to select another site. All you need to do is, install the Hawks high above the roosting birds…..or prevent entry to the roosting area.
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. From previous customer experience in similar situations we can say that a Hawk Bird Scarer will work for you.
