The Bird B Gone Hawk Decoy is the first Red Tailed Hawk Decoy available in today's market and is used the same way as owl decoys to scare birds from open areas. Visual bird deterrents appeal to a bird's sight and sense of danger. Red Tailed Hawks are known for hunting during the day, while most owl species hunt at night when birds are roosting. This makes the hawk a more identifiable predator to birds. When birds see the decoy, they will want to avoid the area!
