Build a Scarecrow Day

Date When Celebrated: First Sunday in July

Build a Scarecrow Day. He will help to keep birds out of your garden... we hope.

When we first started research on this special day, we thought it should have been held in the fall. Our logic was that Scarecrows are a big hit in decorating during the fall, and are associated with harvest scenes. But, then we realized the error in the logic.......

Scarecrows are built to stand out in the garden to scare crows and other birds away. The crops are out growing in the field during the summer months. So, if you're going to build a scarecrow for your garden, the time is now. Hence, a July date.

Sometimes the scarecrow does his job quite effectively. The birds think someone is in the garden, and they stay away. Other times, they know better.  How can you tell that a bird is not scared by a scarecrow? When you see a bird resting upon a scarecrow, you can be pretty certain that the bird has not been fooled.

BTW: If you are having trouble with birds (or deer or bunnies) in your garden.........

The Origin of Build a Scarecrow Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
