Functionality

Scarecrows adds, as the name suggests, scarecrows. There are 3 tiers of scarecrows, each having 2 variants. Every tier will scare monsters in an increasingly larger area given that monster can see the scarecrow (details below). The first variant of each tier will only scare monsters, the second one of each tier will additionally scare animals. The respective mobs are also unable to spawn in the area affected by a scarecrow.

When a mob is scared by a scarecrow, it will run away from the scarecrow, crying for help by making tons of noise (except for creepers, because they're super quiet). Sometimes, if you lure them into the scarecrow's area, mobs will be too fixated on a player to notice the scarecrow, but they will eventually run away.

Scarecrows are built in a similar manner to iron or snow golems, placing a (carved) pumpkin last. Placing a Jack o' Lantern last will make the scarecrow emit light. You'll also notice, that every scarecrow has arms (the sticky things on their side). Those arms are placed by rightclicking a block with a stick. Arms can only be placed on the side of a block. How exactly you build each type is shown in the images below.

To remove a scarecrow, break the block it's placed on. You'll get back all the blocks and items the scarecrow was made of.
1.13+ only: If you do not place the pumpkin last, rightclick it to build the scarecrow. Only Carved Pumpkins and Jack o' Lanterns work.
