Has anyone ever tried using a laser to scare away fish eating birds from a pond?

I see these types of devices are available.

It appears some wineries are using fancy laser systems.

Do lasers work relatively well during daylight?

The water-turkey seem to only be stealing fish during daylight during winter.

I'm wondering if pointing a laser towards water-turkeys during the day might scare them off?

Zep, only time I've used them they have worked pretty well, but then again, there was high speed lead following the laser...........
