The common form of a scarecrow is a human figure dressed in old clothes and placed in open farmers fields to discourage birds such as crows or sparrows from disturbing and feeding on recently sown seed and growing crops.
Scarecrows have appeared in books written as far back as as the year 712 and probably the most famous scarecrow of all features in the film "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz".
