We have a problem with birds nesting on roof of the St. John Paul II MaterCare maternity hospital, mostly at night.  They leave a mess on the roof that smells and gets into the downpipes. So in February, I suggested to the Sisters that they get a model owl or eagle to put up, and see if it keeps them off. 

 

Here are some photos; One showing some of the birds. The "eagle" that was made. 

 

 

The day I left Isiolo, the birds either moved far away from the eagle or they moved to the laundry and kitchen, so it worked!  The Sisters are getting more made. Now to think of a name for this little guy...
