Why is it called a scarecrow?

Asked by Soleil Norris

During the medieval times of Britain, the scarecrows originated as actual young children who would go through the fields throwing stones when birds would land in the fields. … Thus, they made the scarecrows out of stuffed sacks of straw and carved faces out of gourds and turnips, which stood against a pole.
