Here in NW PA orchards we have a device that is on a timer...I imagine you
can set its interval. It goes "KaBoom" which tends to scare birds very
effectively. Not sure how it will work on Ernie, though.
I've personally defaulted to tolerating the birds. The other day there
were over 200 purple martins up on the top 40m yagi.
