UNIT 8

Scarecrows are usually figures of people that farmers
put in fields to frighten away birds. The farmers don't
want the birds to eat their crops. Most scarecrows wear
old clothes and look scary. But, not all scarecrows look
like people.
Some farmers make scarecrows that look like hawks or
other animals that birds are afraid of. One farmer even
made a scarecrow in the shape of a cat, with marbles for
its eyes.
The newest kind of scarecrow is being used by the
farmers of Japan. It is a smelly scarecrow that gives off
an odor that birds hate. If the birds are not scared by the
looks of the new scarecrow, the smell will drive them
away.
