Bird-X Owl Gets a Redesign

Bird-X’s R&D team has created a more natural and realistic owl decoy and visual scare product.

| May 3, 2012

CHICAGO - Bird-X announces the introduction of the Prowler Owl, a realistic owl decoy and visual scare product. According to Bird-X Owner Joe Seid, "You have to keep it fresh.  You can use birds' instincts against them - they survive by avoiding threats like owls and other predators.  But they're not so bird-brained that you can fool them with any old plastic owl - which is why we don't sell those.  It has to be something they can't get used to, something super scary that moves and changes.  That's why we took this opportunity to make our flying Prowler Owl even scarier."

Bird-X has successfully offered a flying Great Horned Owl for some years.  The airfoil design makes the four-foot wingspan quiver and move in the slightest breeze, giving a frighteningly real quality to the product.  Now in a new redesign, the Bird-X R&D team has gone all-out to make it even more natural and realistic.
 
The design team's avian specialist Alison James explains, "There was no flying owl on the market that looked as real as it should.  With today's technology, we knew we could make the best, most lifelike owl available anywhere."  A bird enthusiast herself, James loved working on the project: "We drew from actual images of owl plumage - taken from multiple angles - to get the realistic feathers printed onto the wings and belly part."  This attention to detail shows in the finished product.  Clay artist Mr. Li Jian Xin created a unique, original head in an authentic flight position.  This head formed the basis for the production mold.
 
The result is a realistic and effective owl decoy and visual scare product.  Besides its terrifying aspect from the perspective of smaller birds, James says, "we recognize that a realistic owl is an attractive thing in itself - so if people are using one of these on a property where visuals matter, it's a natural look.  People can put it on their home or in their garden, and not have it detract from what they've created.  To human eyes it looks pretty cool."
