In general, scarecrow is meant to be an object representing a humanoid figure set up to frighten birds away from crop fields. Or a skinny and ragged person meant frighten but harmless Or Scarecrow is a character first introduced as Jonathan Crane, a psychology professor in Golden Age of Comic Books. This is his first appearance later turns the story into crime by firing a gun in the classroom full of students in order to illustrate a point.
Using scarecrows is a traditional method of keeping away the predators from crop fields. People believe that scarecrows work when they are motionless. But overtime birds got used to stationery dummies. However, moving a scarecrow every fortnight often helps.
The scariest part of scarecrows is its humanoid shape. Usually, the scarecrows dressed up in old clothes and placed in open crop fields to discourage predators like birds (crows and sparrows) from disturbing and feeding the growing crops. Some uses inflatable tube men to scare away birds.
The traditional way of stuffing a scarecrow is with hay, straw, grass, wood chips, rags, and clippings. Try to avoid using newspapers to stuff your scarecrow because rains cause the stuff soggy and shapeless.
There is no doubt to answer straight away that ‘Scary’. Because scarecrows look like a corpse and human but in fact they don’t look very human at all.
