All things Scarecrow
Traditionally a scarecrow is a human shaped figure that is dressed up and stands in a field to scare birds away from feeding on crops and grains.
The first scarecrows in recorded history were situated along the River Nile to protect wheat fields from flocks of quail.
The Greeks carved scarecrows out of wood to look like Priapus the son of the god Dionysus and the goddess Aphrodites
The Japanese used wooden scarecrows to protect rice paddies
Scarecrows are also known as
- & Shoy-hoys

A SCARECROW NO SCARECROW.
An umbrella for a scarecrow
Was in a cornfield placed,
And with loud caws the sly old crows
Around it gravely paced ;
When suddenly a shower fell,
And under it they went,
And stayed until the rain had ceased,
As in a little tent.
Then said they, as they all trooped out
"That man's a jolly feller ;
Not only plants the corn for us, But lends us his umbrella !"
