These scarecrows are part of the Fall Festival at Tucson Botanical Gardens.

Traditionally, scarecrows are human figures placed in fields to discourage birds from feeding on crops. But these days they are more often used to celebrate autumn.

Some alternate names for scarecrows are: Mommet, Hodmedod, Tattie bogle, Flay-crow, Mawpin, Bird-scarer, Moggy, Shay and Bogeyman.
