Problems caused by birds in grape, fruit and nut crops

Bird damage to fruit and nut crops is very variable and is a result of a number of largely independent factors (success of the previous breeding season, availability of natural foods when the grapes are ripening, food preferences, foraging strategies, etc.). It is therefore difficult to predict the likelihood of severe damage in any season, but a basic knowledge of the biology and ecology of the bird species concerned will help.
