The species blackbird (Turdus merula), song thrush (Turdus philomelos), juniper thrush (Turdus pilaris) and redwing (Turdus musicus) are birds of prey during the grape harvest because they like to eat the grapes and can cause major damage. They prefer to eat the grapes from the ground, which they peck at. Unlike the starling, however, these birds do not occur in large flocks. The long-legged birds are 20 to 25 centimetres tall, have a pointed bill and relatively large eyes. They are partial migrants - in addition to the larger numbers migrating south in winter, some also stay in the country.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
