Owl fail

Owl fail, 10/3/21

This is not the first time that I have photographed evidence that the fake owls that stand on some of the buildings in Hebden Bridge fail to deter the pigeons in any way. But it is the first time I have caught one with a pigeon actually sat on its head. The humiliation is complete.

Failed ruse

Scare owl, 10/1/17

“Pssst. Do you think the humans know that we have seen through their devious ruse?”

“I don’t know. If we keep looking nervous, perhaps neither they nor the evil ducks will notice how we’ve reoccupied this strategic vantage point.”

“Why the frig anyone thought a plastic owl would scare us during the daytime, I’ve no…”

“Ssssh!”
