Repel pest birds and rodents with this heavy duty plastic hawk decoy. Looks realistic and is weather and water resistant. Hawks are natural predators that hunt during the day...unlike owls who usually hunt during the night. Birds identify hawks as a dangerous predator, and will leave the area where hawks are preying. Can be mounted on patio covers, rooftops, boat canvases and other flat surfaces (open bottom tab of hawk and fill with sand to weight). It can also be hung in fruit trees, from patios, under eaves of homes using the convenient loop at the top of the hawk.
