   This is a cool project! I did something like this a few years ago (a
squirrel detector) using processing, but I had to dedicate a whole laptop
and run cables out my window to scare squirrels out of my garden,
   The Raspberry PI is amazing - you could make a scarecrow with motion
detection (or even image recognition?) small enough to leave right in the
garden between the plants, and run it off a battery.
