A bird like a blackbird with different feet, claws and beak

General Attributes

The merilliones is found in some medieval encyclopedias. It is similar to a blackbird, but the feet and beak are different. They are prey for other birds because they are small and weak. Four of them together can kill a swan: One seizes the swan's head, two seize its wings, and the fourth attacks its breast or neck.
