Product Overview

Defenders Wind Powered Plastic Action Owl Decoy

Wind Powered Plastic
Action Owl Decoy

The Defenders Wind Powered Plastic Action Owl Decoy is a full-size replica owl that is usually used to scare pigeons and other bird species that may have become a problem. The idea of using a plastic owl as a pigeon or bird scarer is to activate the pest bird's instinctive fear of predators. The Defenders Wind Powered Action Owl Decoy has a rotating and bobbing head that moves in just the gentlest of breezes. Owls with moving heads are proven to be more successful than owls with no moving parts at all.

Plastic decoy owls can be used in multiple locations including boats, car parks, roof tops, gardens, trees and many other buildings and properties.

The main feature of the Defender Wind Powered Plastic Action Owl Decoy is the moveable head that will start rotating and bobbing in a light wind. The life-like, full-size replica also has reflective eyes. These key features have been added to prevent the pest birds becoming habituated to the decoy. For large areas it is recommended that two or more owls are used.

Manufacturer's Comments

Defenders Wind Powered Plastic Action Owl Decoy

Wind Powered Plastic
Action Owl Decoy

The manufacturer says: "The wind activation owl can be used to stop pigeons and seagulls roosting on your roof, house ledges and garden areas. It's a great visual bird deterrent but also has the added features of movement and reflective light components to enhance the wind action owl to deter birds and other pests naturally."

  • Wind powered rotating head and reflective eyes to provide a life-like appearance.
  • Realistic profile deters birds and nuisance pests from any garden area.
  • Full size replica.

Manufacturer's Installation Guide

  • Install the owl using the mounting hole on the base or fill with sand or gravel.
  • For best results locate the owl higher than the problem area to ensure the wind activation parts keep working and the reflective eyes can be seen by the pigeons; for example, on roof-tops, garden sheds, fence posts.
  • Fix by sticking on a pole with a one inch (25 mm) diameter. Alternatively, fill with sand or gravel then stick the owl onto the required surface. The hook on the base can be cable tied to tree branches.

Our Review

Defenders Wind Powered Plastic Action Owl Decoy

Wind Powered Plastic
Action Owl Decoy

With regards to pigeon and bird control, plastic owls are a relatively cheap option and are deemed to be completely humane in that they do not harm the birds.

In many situations it appears that plastic owl decoys do work in that they will scare away pigeons and other birds, although we have had several customers report that the "scariness" factor soon wears off! To delay the onset of this habitualisation (getting used to the owl), regularly move the owl to different locations.

If moving the owl around will cause a problem or if you have lots of pigeons or pigeons nesting or using overnight roosting sites, you may be better off using Pigeon Anti-Roosting Spikes which will offer a longer-term, more effective solution.

Finally, we would strongly recommend that you call us in the first instance. Our friendly support staff will happily talk you through the various solutions.
