Stephanie is on the coop board- here you can see her in one of her quinoa fields. As bird damage has been increasing of late, with the apparition of bigger pigeons that are not indigenous to the area. Here she shows of the various methods they are trying to scare off the birds- plastic strips and bits of old analogue tape have been placed around the field to scare off the birds. Results so far are mixed, so they are looking at battery operated sonic  speakers that make the sounds of birds of prey at intermittent moments. For the fields closer to home a simple catapult does the trick!
