Ah, the favourite of the crows - the lowly scarecrow. Originally made to scare crows away from the fields of corn he has become a faux being, a joke to be cawed at by the crows. One of the earliest mention of this being is found in Japanese literature, known as a Kuebiko. Alternative names are mawpin, moggy, shay, guy and bogeyman.
Scarecrow Gothic, with apologies to Grant Wood.....

Most crows will recognize the Tin Man trying to be a scarecrow.

This one is probably taking it a bit too far...
