In order to avoid the Pterodactyl visits of last summer, we bought a decoy to foil the live ones from coming over to eat our fish and frogs. Apparently blue heron are loners, so the sight of one sitting at a pond is enough of a deterrent to those flying by to keep moving. BUT....you have to put this guy out after May (heron mating season) so you don't accidentally attract more herons to your yard. AND you have to keep moving him so they don't get used to your fake giant birdie.
That's totally gonna be a job for Joe: Pterodactyl staging and placement.
He's gonna love that.
But that job isn't going to be half as difficult as mine: convincing the cats that he isn't real and that they can go outside without getting eaten by a giant bird.
