Floating Pond Decoy: Gator
It has worked so far!
A huge (3.5 foot tall ) Blue Heron was eating our goldfish. I didn't think a a fake bird would intimidate it so was looking for another option. Since we got the Gator head Jr it has been back but won't go near the pond, Sweet!

Works and adds character to the pond.
I have not been bothered by Blue Heron since I have added 2 gators to my pond. Before the gators, I lost half of my fish to a Heron. By the way I live on gran island ny, so I am surrounded by water and water birds.

Looks Great and It works on Blue Heron
I placed the Gator Jr. in my pond several weeks ago. A couple days ago, I observed a very large Blue Heron fly into my back yard (hard not to notice) The bird immediately took back into the air leaving my pond and Koi unharmed. I think the Gator Jr. spoke him away. If it was not the cause, it still looks good. I use it unanchored, so it move around freely.

Very realistic looking in my pool. We are using it to discourage ducks and it seems to be working well.
