Merula

Fontes:

80 merula ex nigra rufescit, canit aestate, hieme balbutit, circa solstitum muta. rostrum quoque anniculis in ebur transfiguratur, dumtaxat maribus.

[12.7.69] Merula antiquitus medula vocabatur, eo quod modulet. Alii merulam aiunt vocatam quia sola volat, quasi mera volans. Haec cum in omnibus locis nigra sit, in Achaia autem candida est.
