Beccafico, literally translated from the Italian as ‘pecker of figs’, are little birds that like to hang by their feet from ripe figs and peck away at the sweet flesh of the fruits. You might (or might not!) see a resemblance between them and the stuffed sardines, with their rounded bellies and beak-like tails. This particular recipe comes from the eastern side of Sicily.
