Dear WhirlyBird Solutions,
We live near the Tail Race Canal (Cooper River but Moncks Corner end) so we have a lot of bird traffic. We have in our yard a Koi pond which is out in the open. Between the Koi pond and our bird feeders, we have numerous song birds in our yard. Before I installed the WhirlyBird Repeller, I had problems with hawks attacking and killing the birds perched and drinking from our Koi Pond Waterfall. We would find feathers from the bird kills on a regular basis and we wanted to find a way to protect the birds by keeping them away from our Koi pond and out of harms way. We also wanted to protect the Koi by keeping birds away from the pond.
We heard about the WhirlyBird Repeller through the Charleston Showa Koi Club, and we were given the opportunity to test one out. Since we installed the WhirlyBird Repeller in December 2007, we have not seen any hawks land in our yard, nor have we seen any feathers piled up in our yard. As for the eagles, egrets, and heron, I do not see them flying as low to the house as they used to and I still have all 38 Koi in my pond. Attached is a picture showing the WhirlyBird Repeller mounted next to our pond.
Thanks for such a wonderful invention that will save my Koi and backyard birds. For all those reading these testimonials, the WhirlyBird Repeller really works!
