1. The ornamental design for a bird-repellent device, as shown and described.

Description:

The file of this patent contains at least one drawing/photograph executed in color. Copies of this patent with color drawing(s)/photograph(s) will be provided by the Office upon request and payment of the necessary fee.

FIG. 1 is a right front perspective view of the bird-repellent device showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a right side elevational view of the bird-repellent device of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a left side elevational view of the bird-repellent device of FIGS. 1 and 2;

FIG. 4 is a front elevational view of the bird-repellent device of FIGS. 1-3;

FIG. 5 is a rear elevational view of the bird-repellent device of FIGS. 1-4;

FIG. 6 is a top plan view of the bird-repellent device of FIGS. 1-5;

FIG. 7 is a bottom plan view of the bird-repellent device of FIGS. 1-6;

FIG. 8 is a right rear perspective view of the bird-repellent device of FIGS. 1-7; and,

FIG. 9 is a right perspective view from above of the bird-repellent device of FIGS. 1-8.

The design includes a metallic plate containing a color reproduction of a woodpecker in the form of a so-called “yellowhammer woodpecker” (official name: northern flicker), with the lower end of the plate bent outwardly to form a support member. The plate is to be mounted to a wooden pole, for instance a telephone pole, to make woodpeckers believe the pole is already occupied by a woodpecker and thereby deter woodpeckers from picking holes in the pole.
