For the last 2 weeks a few pigeons have been targetting my garden. They have been eating the flowers and leaves and I shooing them but they still come back. Husband suggested using bird repellents to get rid of the birds. But I am afraid if they will harm the birds, i don't want them killed. Is there any natural bird repellents that can be used? One that will get rid of the birds but makes sure that the birds are not harmed.

A motion activated sprinkler? This video shows one working for pigeons - of course it will also get any people or pets passing by....sorry there's an ad at the beginning of the video:
