Bird Scarer in the fig tree

My father-in-law, Egidio, makes these fantastic bird scarers to put in the fig tree to stop the birds eating the figs. The figs don’t get eaten but I think it’s probably the grumpy looking man constantly peering out the window giving them “male occhi” (literally ‘bad eye’) that keeps them away rather than the plywood cats with luminous green eyes and red triangles for noses.
