I'm telling you - my little 5 foot long blowgun worked much better than the pellet pistol on the pigeons I was forced to take out at a client's house. Quieter too.

Yup! Worked for me also. I hung the owl up and The CLK Man hasn't been by since. Course, hiding the beer MIGHTA had something to do with it also!

I did ask him that and he said give me a beer and I will tell you, I said kiss my A$$ and get your own beer. Then the owl said FU, then I thought to myself, "Is The Clk Man going to have to ***** slap and owl".

The owl is working, but the birds have moved to another window. Looks like a few more owls may be in order.
