7 July - Build a Scarecrow Day
Scarecrows are a big hit in decorating during the fall, and are associated with harvest scenes. But, scarecrows are built to stand out in the garden to scare crows and other birds away.
About 2,500 B.C., Greek farmers carved wooden scarecrows in the image of Priapus, the son of Dionysus and Aphrodite, creating a “scarecrow” that was supposedly ugly enough to scare the birds away from their vineyards, ensuring a good harvest.
Many pesky birds are precocious of changes in their environment. Because of this, they are immediately wary of a scarecrows first appearance. After awhile, they adapt and understand the scarecrow is not an actual threat.
