Thankyou for your enquiry about the Hawk Bird Scarer. 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 birds flying into windows. You can become part of a revolution in bird control by using this unique device because. In most situations these Hawks will work provided the birds can see the Hawk profile as they approach the window. 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. There are two methods that you can use to stop birds flying into windows.

  1. By taping one Hawk to the outside of your window, approaching birds will turn away.
  2. By suspending a Hawk from under the eve or the gutter above the problem window you will stop birds flying into the window.

Birds fly into windows for one of two reasons. The most obvious reason is they don’t see the glass and so fly into it thinking that it is open space. The other reason is that they actually see their reflection in the glass and think it is another bird in their territory and so attack it. It is usually only the male bird that does this and often it is at mating time. When he sees the reflection he puffs himself up to scare the other bird away. But of course what he sees is the reflection doing the same thing. This makes him mad and so he continues to attack the intruder but to no avail.

By installing a Hawk prior to the nesting season you can usually stop this until the nesting season is over then remove it till next year.
