The Eagle Eye is a truly revolutionary product. It is an optical bird scarer that harmlessly deters birds from unwanted areas by making use of light beams reflected from direct sunlight or artificial light. The reflective pyramid rotates via an electric motor, sending the beams around in a menacing pattern. The light spectrum reflected back by the Eagle Eye disorients birds in flight by limiting their vision significantly. This causes the bird to deviate in flight and fly to another destination.
Bird Barrier now introduces two new versions, both powered by the wind:
Wind Powered on a Pole – Like the 12 volt model, this Eagle Eye must be raised a few feet above a rooftop or agricultural setting; but unlike the electric version, this one spins on its own without a motor or power source; it’s powered by the wind.
The company is also announcing a wind-powered model for boats. Instead of mounting to the end of a pole, this one hangs by a line from the mast (or a spreader), and is also secured from below with another line (this insures it won’t swing about). Swivels mounted above and below the Eagle Eye allow it to spin freely, and insure that it won’t tangle up its mounting lines. Naturally, at least some wind is required to make either model spin.
Money can be saved on multiple-unit applications by using a combination of electric and wind driven units. Contact your Bird Barrier technical specialist.
