Avian Standing Art Large Standing Birds Style: Heron
I am very happy with my Blue Heron. It is a good size and looks great in my back yard.
I live in Florida, so it will be getting some very intense sun exposure. I did spray a couple light coats of polyurethane on it hoping that the color won't fade.

Finally, something that WORKS!
We have a 30'x60' pond in our back yard which we have stocked with beautiful Koi fish. The bright colors of the Koi attracted the attention of several Great Blue Herons. These birds are beautiful to watch, but not when they are gobbling down your prized Koi. So, we tried standing guard and scaring them away. But these birds are very cunning, and they seemed to watch our house until we were gone, then they would attack. Nothing seemed to stop them. Then, I found the heron and gator decoys online. I read all the reviews, and decided to give them a try. There were less expensive herons but we decided that this model was so attractive it would serve as pond art, and hopefully would fool the herons. I learned that herons prefer to hunt alone, so when they see such a realistic decoy they prefer to pass the pond by.
I also liked the idea of the alligator decoys, that move around freely in the wind. These 'boys' are very realistic, especially when they move.
We've had the decoys for about 6-weeks now, and so far, they seem to have completely resolved our heron problem. I could not be more pleased with our decision to purchase these decoys. I would highly recommend them to anyone with a similar problem.

Beautiful Blue Heron
I had been trying to figure out what to do with a tall 13 foot "stump" I have and then I saw your metal, painted birds. I thought I would drill a couple of holes int he stump and stick the Blue Heron in there for a couple of laughs.
The joke was on me because it looks incredible and everybody thinks I'm so clever for doing it. Your garden sculpture looks beautiful up there and I think I might get a Flamingo in the spring and swap it out once in a while.
Thanks so much. I am super pleased with the quality, color, price and delivery!!

Love the Heron
Made of heavy gage metal with nice detailing. Really stands out from a distance. I added a couple layers of clear coat to help preserve the metal. Very pleased with this purchase.
