RoBird® is revolutionizing wildlife management

Drone technology that mimics nature’s most effective predator

Meet RoBird® - the safe, effective and humane wildlife management solution for complex industries

The most consistently effective bird hazing tool is a bird’s own natural enemy.

RoBird® is a remote-control flapping wing drone that mimics the characteristics of an actively hunting, female peregrine falcon. The technical term for RoBird® is an ornithoptor, which is an aircraft that flies by flapping its wings in imitation of birds of flight.

The RoBird Advantage includes:

The RoBird® Advantage #1: Mimics bird behaviour

Other birds think RoBird® is the real deal – and they steer clear

The peregrine falcon is the most widely recognized and feared bird of prey on earth. RoBird®’s design is ideal because the falcon is a predator that hunts birds from higher altitudes in open areas, like airports, and has the lifelike appearance and weight of its living counterpart.

All aspects of bird psychology and falconry were considered in RoBird®’s design, including the fact that birds have a keen cognitive ability and an outstanding memory. Birds respond to two things when confronted with prey; the silhouette and behavioural pattern. Birds rely on wing beat frequency to determine how aggressive a predator is. RoBird® mimics the peregrine falcon wing beat frequency with precise accuracy.

RoBird® is a field-proven, effective technology for bird safety and damage mitigation.

The RoBird® Advantage #2: The most humane choice

A true-to-nature flapping wing drone – indistinguishable from the real predator

RoBird® naturally, humanely, and safely leverages the characteristics of the peregrine falcon to scatter and reduce bird populations with zero harm.

Our team of engineers and developers have drawn inspiration from the motion and behaviour of birds and have considered research into aerodynamic properties in their design. The result is a game-changing device in the field of wildlife management, one in which the RoBird® operator is in full control of what happens in the air.

What makes RoBird® the most humane choice?

  • It ties into natural avian flight or fight responses rather than adding unnatural human stressors
  • RoBird® does not kill or harm birds, but rather is able to safely remove them without depredation
  • Unlike with traditional falconry options, RoBird® does not require food, shelter, or training
  • RoBird® can hunt anytime, and it can be used alone, or alongside, other bird control methodologies


As AERIUM rapidly expands across North America we are developing training and hardware solutions to provide economical opportunities for growers to add RoBird® to their fleets and wildlife mitigation strategies.

The RoBird® Advantage #3: Advanced flight capability

All birds on site notice when RoBird enters the scene.

RoBird includes the following features which contribute to its advanced and lifelike flight capabilities:

Birds react to RoBird® in different ways depending on what they are doing. RoBird® is effective in herding flocks and moving them to safe locations and can change the flight path of migrating birds by intercepting them mid-path. Whether the birds are loafing on water, perching in trees, aerial displaying, or feeding, they will react to RoBird® by getting out of harm’s way.

The RoBird® Advantage #4: Lasting behavioural changes

Behavioural changes that save bird lives, reduce bird strikes, and remove birds from harm’s way

Our RoBird® field teams use aggressive and consistent flight in targeted locations to reduce bird populations in these areas. This may be coupled with additional wildlife management tools, including pyrotechnics and long-range acoustic hailing devices. Birds then begin to associate the target location as high-risk and stay away. For good.
