Does anybody have suggestions for discouraging crows? I want them to relocate.

There are hundreds of them having a war near my house, day after day. I can't shoot them because this is an urban enviroment. What works?

To scare away or get rid of the crows, create a scarecrow body by raising a bamboo pole and then stuffing it with old shirts to look like a person. Secondly, set up a bird repel system, use an owl decoy, keep a dog, make some noises and blast them with a water gun to scare them away.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I like the owl decoy and watergun ideas best. So you have any idea what kind of recorded sounds might frighten or repel them? I'd like to shoot them all, but there's too many and I would get arrested.

You could "dicourage" them by purchasing and using firearms. Trust me, it works. ;)

I really wish I could shoot them, but I would be arrested and the neighbours with small children would complain. I would have to mark the other box on the form I have to fill out at work once a year: 'have you ever been arrested or convicted of a felony?' Blah Blah Blah You know how people are about having criminals teaching school!

In my neighborhood they put fake owls on the roof. At the nearby country club they have fake Black Labs set up, along with the owls on the rooftops. If you get a landing of a lot of crows at once. Pop a paper bag.
