Scare Away

Screenshot #1 (iPhone)
Once pest birds like crows, ravens, gulls or pigeons are recognized in the camera, Scare Away plays alarm sound to scare these birds away. You will need this tool for your next beach trip :)

For crows and ravens specifically (with "All Other Birds" toggled off), this app will play the crow/raven alarm call, these birds will be scared away but all other birds should not be affected. This feature could be used to protect the lovely nesting birds in your backyard.

For pest birds other than crow and raven, this app will play screaming eagle sounds so that all birds will be scared away. You could use it to protect your yummy snack from seagulls while you are on the beach.

After modify the settings, please consider use the TEST button to simulate the trigger event and see if the app works as planned. Especially if user choose to Take Video when triggered, please press TEST button to grant access to the app to take video and save to camera roll. Due to iOS system limitation, you have to grant the permission for screen record every time you start the app fresh.

When the alarm action is on going, user can press the STOP button to stop current alarm.

You could also use it to distinguish crow and raven as the recognition accuracy is about 90%. However, Please keep in mind that this app is not designed for bird identification.
