Comments about Motion Sensor Owl:
From th3e first day, this owl worked when it felt like it - sometimes not at all and sometimes would not stop hooting. After a week it stopped working completely. The slightest wind blows it over. This is real junk.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

Don't waste your money on this product
By Happy Camper
Product lasted 5 days before the speaker quit working. Does not scare squirrels or birds away. Would not recommend this product.

It's too light for outdoor use. Purchase marbles (don't use sand, BBs too expensive), place in base, seal and use! Move it constantly so birds don't be come accustomed to it. Good luck!

The sound part quit working almost right after we received it; then the head motion part quit working also after only having it two weeks. Putting new batteries in it didn't help any.
Totally Unreliable and ineffective
from Hilliard Florida
The owl's hooting is inconsistent; low volumn, motion sensor is unreliable even at close range. I used them to deter deer from my rose beds and they did not meet the challenge. I made certain that I used the correct battery and changed thoem every 5 10 days. This was a total waste of my time and money. They just stood there on the pole mountings that we errected. We were not tole we would need special mounting devices. I am so disappointed; my roses were completed devoured by the deer.
from Houston, TX
The advertising for this owl is false. We received the owl and immediately noticed the wide gap between the neck and body of the owl. My hubby pointed out the wires and motor that could be seen and commented that this thing isn't weather proof. After looking over the box it came in we found the phrase FOR INDOOR USE ONLY. This phrase had been covered up by a blank white sticker. This is more of a figurine or prank owl than an actual owl to scare birds, squirrels away.

Motion Sensor Owl
from Venice, Florida
Was only out for one day -- rained and then it did not work again. Should be better for outdoor use. Would not recommend for anyone to purchase.
A silent owl?
from Holyoke, MA
I had to shut off the voice since it was bothersome to my neighbors and kept my son awake. Without that feature, I'm not sure if it works to scare away the pigeons.. Time will tell
