Bird Netting SummaryAlice Wise & Libby Tarleton, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County
We have felt that color development definitely draws birds. Many times we have observed panels of reds such as Pinot Noir starting veraison. We come back literally the next day and all the red berries are gone. This has happened several times. We know this damage was inflicted by birds due to the bird activity in the vineyard as well as the presence of pecked fruit.
