Bird Fruit

Fall just got a little better for the birds whose territory overlaps our home.  And that is because my efforts to install wildlife friendly native vegetation is bearing fruit.  Literally!  this beautyberry is loaded with fruit that is ripening.  I expect it to go quickly, and spread this plant through the neighborhood (my secret plan!).  Also fruiting has been wild grape and some Downy Arrowwood.  And I have hopes for some Strawberry Bush.  More will follow in coming years, as plants mature and as I add more soft mast plants.  And that's bird fruit!
