    This folkloric relic is called a "Klapotec" pronounced "clapotets"
    name of Slovenijan origin.

    For any years, birds were a pest around the wine gardens and
    someone had the idea to make a noise maker driven by wind.
    It had an immediate and huge success as the growers were al-
    ready pulling the hair off their head.

    The gizmo worked for a couple of days but the birds came back
    to the gardens. The Klapotec are still produced today as land-
    marks but are only that… even when some are clapping.
