I saw that plastic falcons were on sale at the hardware store, and I wanted to use one to scare away the rodents and the blackbirds in my garden. Would it also scare away the songbirds? I was wondering because songbirds are so beneficial.

my two cents? If you try it or any other plastic bird (like the owl many use), you have to move the location once in a while. I read if you don't birds get used to it and don't scare from it anymore. Sorry changed the subject, not sure about songbirds hope someone will answer your question soon.

I did go ahead and buy it. You should have seen the Grackles (a destructive kind of blackbird) scatter! I'm still curious about the songbirds. I hope someone else is able to answer.
