Post owls
I want to put birds on cord but in the past I have had issues with owls, they are the only thing I have issues with, I have a secure pen and my shepherd is on the yard all day but not at night any tips for owls

Post Re: owls
1) Install a very good and strong Great Horned Owl decoy at a prominent location . GHO are territorial and will move on after failing to run off the decoy. Downside, your owl probelm might not always be GHO
2) Install means of controlling an incandescant relatively low wattage white light to flash, casting its light omni-directionally. This deprives him of his night vision assets. Downside, looks like you are too lazy to take down your Christmas lights :mrgreen: Carr can make a flasher if you need, are you good with electrical work?

Freaking owls are killing me. I'm moving a dog out near the young bird yard and will add a plastic owl. Finch, are y ou saying those lights work? I thought you said they didn't? Or was that someone else?
