Device to get rid of pesky pigeons on balcony?

Nothing that would permanently harm the pigeons (although it is tempting), but something that would scare the bejesus out of them. Maybe a motion sensor that would swing something to scare them.... maybe it woud play a predator sound when they got too close... the possibilities are endless. Please help!

if you're ever in downtown knoxville TN (market square to be exact)..you'll hear two completely disconcerting sounds....one is a VERY large propane cannon that goes off at random intervals (sounds like a civil war black powder cannon) and then the weirdest bird call you've ever heard...it's the call of some kind of raptor (not sure which)...but if you've never heard it...and you've never gotten the explanation that it's coming from a speaker on top of one of the buildings it's pretty creepy

That thing would also take care of pesky neighbors, a few dogs, and an accidental car or two!

try putting a piece of wood with nails in it and placing that on the window sill, have the nails facing upwards so that when the pidgeons land on it it wont harm them, but it will deterre them away from the window sill, the nails dont need to bee that big if you dont want to see them, just apply it to your window sill with a bit of adisive glue
easy get a horse fence shocker and put the wire back and forth along the areas the sit. horses learn, so will pigeons
This keeps birds out of my friend's vineyard. It's called the Bird-X Scare-Eye Balloon and they are $10.00.
