Crow scaring in Kaiseraugst AG

The Robird is a robotic drone with wing flapping propulsion. It is mainly used at airports, landfills, ports and in the agricultural sector to sustainably reduce bird pressure.

In August 2019, the world’s first trial to actively scare away crows using Robird began. Eagle Eye™ Solutions was the first company in the world to use Robird with great success in the sustainable deterrence of ravens and rooks. In August 2020 (video) the bird pressure was reduced by more than 85%.

AVES Falcon Bird

The AVES Falcon Bird is a further development of the Robird. However, it no longer flies with wing flapping propulsion, but is a fixed-wing aircraft with a propeller in its mouth. The precise and high speed together with a micro camera in the belly enables the direct attack of the crows in the tree tops.

The AVES Falcon Bird should be in use from summer 2021. This drone will then also be available for purchase.
