Purpose of a Scarecrow?

Answer

A scarecrow is a scary looking mannequin that is placed on a pole. It is set up in a field that has crops growing on it. The purpose of a scarecrow is to scare birds away from the crops. Farmers use them so birds won't want to come down and eat their crops or seeds. Scarecrows range in size. They aren't meant to be gruesome, but they must be frightening enough to scare aware birds.
