G,day All,
A few months ago bird problems in vineyards was mentioned, I always notice here in The Riverland, at this time of the year that groups of Black-faced Cuckoo Shrikes are often seen in vineyards along with Mistletoebirds, they appear to be feeding on dried grapes which have been missed during the harvest, it is not a problem to growers and it is interesting to see that birds are making use of cultivated fruits without causing an uproar.
