SCARECROW!

A survey of devices (including real people) that have been used to scare away birds (and some other pests): The book's a little repetitious and miscellaneous and not very well organized, but does include a substantial array of interesting facts about ""homemade figures...used around the world to protect precious crops for over three thousand years."" Best are the detailed crosshatched drawings and more formal paintings depicting a great variety of these appealing or scary figures. Not as well crafted and informative as Giblin's The Scarecrow Book (1980, o.p.), but a useful visual resource.
