good luck, and I know what you mean. I'm in Ottawa now but I'm from New Brunswick, near Moncton. Here they are complaining that it hasn't warmed up like it usually does yet and "oh it's so cold and there's so much snow!" lol try being from the east coast where winter lasts almost till June and it's not unheard of or even uncommon to get snow in May.

works for smaller birds... might be worth finding out if it works against larger ones

There are many decorative domes and nets out there

I've seen some that look like this food cover with finials. You could make your own with PVC painted green with krylon for plastic and with netting attached with green zip ties. Old curtain finials could go on top.

Here is DIY example:

I use a fake alligator head. Gators are our state reptile so needless to say that the ospreys around here know what they are XD

id probably go with netting. I don't have any personal experience with bird deterrence for ponds. I did see a documentary where they had to protect some medium sized birds (ducks??) from eagles and falcons. they didn't use the smallest mesh for nets but one that was just big enough to let the protected birds get through and just a bit too small for the predatory birds to get though safely. it has been a long time since I saw that episode so I don't remember just how big the netting was but it worked well for them.

though the plastic pond defender does sound like it could also work.

Haha since you mentioned alligators, did you know we have crocodiles down south as well? I just learned that the other day.
