A scarecrow is generally a human figure dressed in old clothes, stuffed with straw and placed in fields by farmers to discourage birds from eating their crops.
Behind the scenes
- In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, during the Time-Turner level when Hagrid looks outside his window, Harry is dressed like a scarecrow.
- In both LEGO Harry Potter games, the scarecrows use the same head as The Scarecrow from LEGO Batman: The Videogame.
- In the Illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Hagrid's scarecrow is dragonlike, with ragged wings and garden implements for hands.
