Clever Japanese Farmer: Keeping crows out of the vegetable patch

Now this is an environmentally-friendly and resourceful improvement on a scarecrow! It seems that, without the use of harmful chemicals, this Japanese farmer came up with a simple system to keep local crows from eating the vegetable patch. How? Things are kept moving and shaking around the growing plants using that roaring little river next to the farm. Follow the strings!
