I've just found one myself in the Amaraṭīkāsarvasva:

manuṣyaḥ cañceva cañcāmanuṣyaḥ kharakuṭī nāpitaśālā | cañcā tṛṇamayaḥ puruṣo yaḥ kṣetrarakṣaṇāya kriyate

Subject: [INDOLOGY] scarecrow

Dear colleagues,

Looking through NWS (search term Vogelscheuche), MW, and even the English-Sanskrit dictionaries at https://sanskrit-lexicon.uni-koeln.de/simple/, it is hard to find any words that evidently means 'scarecrow' in Sanskrit.

Would anyone be able to point me to words expressing this meaning with some degree of plausibility?

Best wishes,

Arlo Griffiths
