Robot ic peregrine falcon can scare birds away from crop fields

A flying robot inspired by peregrine falcons offers a non-lethal method for scaring flocks of birds from crop fields

inspired by a male peregrine falcon can scare away flocks of birds in fields within 5 minutes of flying over and keep them away for up to four hours, on average.Birds can eat crops on farmland or damage aircraft at airports if they collide with them by accident. As a result, several methods have been developed to deter them from congregating at these sites. These include traditional scarecrows, recordings of bird distress calls or lethal approaches involving guns or trained birds of prey.

scaring the birds to another person's land who doesn't have a robotic deterrent! er, stopping birds from eating is non-lethal? okay i see what is meant but really. .FalconryFinance That's neat and all...

Its like we learned nothing from past famines.

If gamekeepers hadn’t driven peregrines to extinction there would be real ones. Alternatively use real birds prosecute the shooting estates that kill goshawks and harriers and the predators will keep the pests away And kill them by hunger...good humans.
