A Scarecrow is a craftable item that prevents crows from eating crops. Scarecrows can be crafted at Farming level 1. Scarecrows are not needed to protect crops grown from Wild Seeds, since crows do not attack them.
A Scarecrow will protect the surrounding circular area of 248 spaces; 8 spaces each to the north, east, south, and west, as well as 6 spaces each to the northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest. In other words, it protects a 17x17 area, excluding 10 spaces in each corner.
Rarecrows work the same way as regular Scarecrows, except for the Alien Scarecrow, which you can place hats on.
