Owl does work but needs to be moved constantly to keep the birds afraid.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Crenaissanceman it's a fake owl. nothing more.
I really wasn't sure what to expect with this purchase. Just have a few fruit trees and was taking a shot that this would keep the blue jayz away. no such luck. the birds actually stand on it.
I suppose it may work in different environments, but not doing the trick here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jb Keeps birds off porch!
We bought owl to keep robin off our porch. We had bird droppings everywhere with potential nest building materials lying about. We placed owl, the robin eyed the porch but never approached again. Worked so well we bought another one for patio.

Good quality product, but doesn't scare away the birds!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ctbagley Very good value....so far the hawk has avoided it.
I had a red tail hawk that unbelievably was stalking my chicken pen (even though it is fully enclosed). Hw would sit and intimidate them from a close tree branch and then he even hopped onto the ground and looked in at them! Never seen this behavior...but it freaked the chickens out so they hid in their coop all day. Placing the owl in a strategic area has worked for the last month. Just move it around every once and a while. Good qualiy bird, realistic movement with head and easy to fill with sand for weight stability.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UnionGal It looks good but haven't tried it yet
I bought this to scare birds off the roof. As it's been cold, I have not yet put it in place. It's quite realistic looking and the head seems to move easily. The one thing that's a little annoying is the plastic vane you have to insert in a slot on the back of the head to make it even more responsive to wind. The slot is not cut all the way through (or wasn't on the one I received). I finally realized this and cut the slot all the way through.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eric Nice ornament, zero effect on damaging squirrels
A nice lawn ornament. I'd bought it because of numerous squirrels doing damage to my lawn and bird feeder. Put it within a foot and a half of the bird feeder, and within the first 12 hours ran off several squirrels sitting right there next to it destroying the bird feeder. So, at least with my squirrels, it had no noticeable effect. Looks nice on the deck rail, but of no value for repelling nuisance squirrels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goodbyechipmunks It works!!
The owl was so life-like when I picked it up from the store. The instructions say to fill the body with sand to weigh it down but I put small pebbles in my owl's body - worked great! I have moved it around to 4 different locations in my yard. My yard was taken over by the chipmunks and ground squirrels and nothing had worked, but this owl has made a huge difference. I cannot see any evidence of new holes in my yard - and the old holes look like they haven't been touched in a long time. I have had the owl for a couple of weeks now and I don't plan on getting rid of it any time soon. It has been a lifesaver for my yard.
