It takes a lot to distress an owl:

CSB: Many years ago when I worked at the Pentagon, in the center of the building was a large courtyard area where many people would go to eat, or just to take breaks during nice weather.

At the center of the courtyard was the "Ground Zero Cafe" (that's the joke), a restaurant where you could buy hot food and sit in the shade.

Well with any environment like that, the pigeons were all over the place, and as we all know, pigeons are very "generous". The government solicited proposals on how to get rid of the pigeon problem. Many extremely expensive solutions were proposed, including using electricity to shock the birds where they typically landed, all kinds of outrageous proposals.

A farmer approached with a proposal and said he could solve the problem much more cheaply. The Pentagon accepted his bid, and the farmer took a bunch of fake owls and strategically placed them all around the courtyard.

Problem was solved, at least for a while.
