Human Scarecrow

Human Scarecrow. “How are you going to keep them down on the farm once they’ve seen Paris,” an old song used to croon. The answer? Hire them to become human scarecrows. Innovative farmers who needed to keep birds from damaging their crops devised the concept of a live scarecrow when they found that the traditional variety wasn’t doing the job. Workers wear bright clothing and play loud instruments to scare the birds away.
