I ordered Owl because we had a pair of ducks who had somehow discovered our tiny little pool, and had proceeded to land on the deck every day, swim in the pool, fowl the pool, the deck, everything, with their fowl poop. So, after an internet search on how to scare away ducks, I ordered Owl.

Technically, Owl does everything it is described to do. It looks real. It looks mean. The solar-powered head turns, as long as the sun can hit the solar panel. We moved it around the pool, as suggested. The ducks weren't fooled. They kept coming, sometimes flying near or landing right next to Owl. I'm pretty sure by now they have Friended Owl on Facebook.

We resorted to other measures . . . and we appear to have gotten rid of the ducks . . . first by spraying them with the hose whenever they arrived (they always announce their arrival with their quacks), sometimes by throwing tennis balls at them (never hitting them, because our aim isn't that good, but good enough to scare them) and then by hanging / stringing obstacles over the pool to make it uninviting to land / swim in. Haven't seen them in about a week. Owl has filed a grievance for loss of companionship.

The good news about Owl is that a stray cat ventured into our back yard the other day, stopped dead in his tracks when he saw Owl, then slowly backed away and exited the yard via the same path he had entered. Wish I had a video of that. I don't think they are Friends on Facebook yet.

Was looking for something to scare away the birds as they were pooping all over my deck.
Bought a stationary hawk statue which helped but still some stragglers would still do their deed.
Came upon this owl that moves its head around in the sun ever 2 minutes and seems to have scared away the rest of the birds. Even surprises visitors who aren't prepared to have the head moving around.
Had problem with inital delivery but once spoke with company they sent out another one right away.
Seems to do what I hoped it would.

I have a serious woodpecker problem. I have tried lots of different plastic devices and creatures, and the solar owl works the best. It is also the most expensive, however. I have attached an image to show the owl mounted on a post near my house. The post is on a small base that allows for easy moving of the entire contraption. The head turns in a realistic way provided there is sunshine. It does not rotate slowly, but snaps around, which is I think more realistic. It works very well to keep the woodpeckers away from the house provided the owl+platform is moved every 2-4 days. Left in the same location for a week, and the woodpeckers will attack the house again unless it is sunny and the head moves.

Note in the image how realistic the eyes are. They did an excellent job with the motion of the head and the realism of the eyes. The coloring is good, and the base can be mounted to a post for easy moving. I used a dead tree branch (see the image).

Dont put the owl on the ground. That doesnt work. The owl needs to be up high, at least 5 feet off the ground to convince the woodpeckers it is hunting.

I purchased this owl to keep squirrels from destroying my corn crop as they have done every year the past few. It must have worked as no squirrels got in my corn!
The owl is very realistic-looking, the eyes are very "intense", the head perfectly balanced, and the solar cell worked great. His head would make a loud "click" sound every 4 mins. or so, and gently spin around slowly. It worked from about 7AM sun until about 7PM every day. Very happy with product.
TIP: You may have to get creative to find a way to mount it. I simply went to Home Depot and bought a length of 1 1/4" PVC pipe and hacksawed it down to about 6' long. Drove this into the ground until sturdy, and the hole in the base of the owl fits perfectly onto the pipe. It rests there atop the pipe perfectly balanced & does it's job!

I bought this and the wind powered owl for squirrels. So far, so good. The squirrel population has thinned and will hopefully remain so. This model is a great idea and is endlessly entertaining. I especially like that no batteries are required. The solar panel is used in conjunction with a capacitor. When the solar panel charges the capacitor to a point, the capacitor discharges and powers the motor. Very nice design. When I first tried it, the head would catch on something and never fully rotate. I finally stuck my finger into the head and felt a wire that seemed to be obstructing full rotation. I gently pushed it against the inside wall of the head and since, it's been dutifully and fully rotating it's head. It also helps to keep the base as level as possible. The solar panel seems to be very efficient, working even on overcast days. The real test of this and the wind powered owl will be when the young squirrels emerge later this spring but so far so good.

Update, 05/12/2011: the squirrels are gone. It's almost errie. At this time of year, the baby squirrels are usually out in force. I haven't seen one in several weeks. Normally there are at least a few at running around, playing and observing during daylight hours. After placing this owl on a fence and a wind powered owl on a pole, the squirrels are completely gone. The downside is that the birds are too. Only the Mockingbirds and Cardinals are present in their usual numbers. I can't quite bring myself to believe that this owl is responsible but I have no other explanation. The next test will be later in the season when the pecans start to grow but for the time being, I have to say this is a very effective squirrel deterrent.
