Is it an Eagle or a Kite?
It looks so real, its hard to tell, maybe that is why it works so well!
Our Bird Gard Eagle Kite is a Bird of Prey Kite or Raptor Kite. It is an actual kite that is a very life like replica of a Raptor bird.
We have tried many different Eagle/Raptor Kites over the last 20 years, but this one along with the smaller Bird Gard Kite, out performs them all. It is the only Raptor Kite/Hawk effigy we would consider selling.
This Eagle Kite is a very realistic copy of an Eagle. Virtually all Bird species have an instinctive fear of Birds of Prey and will fly away on first sight. The Eagle Kite has its own 6.3 metre Telescopic Pole, with a 360 degree swivel attachment on top of the pole and 2.4 metres of string which then attaches to the Eagle’s beak.
The Eagle kite ‘flies’ around the pole, hovering and flapping its wings, diving and weaving in the breeze. It is very life like as the adjoining photos demonstrate. The Kite is made of Tyvek, a space age material made by NASA. It is lightweight, tear resistant, water resistant and is rated up to 40 kph.
