Q. I get Poison Ivy but I’ve heard it is a good plant for birds. Should I cut it out of the woods behind my house?

You have heard correctly, Poison Ivy is an excellent plant for birds and other wildlife. It is an important food source for many migrating species in the fall. I have seen several species of warblers feeding on the little white berries. If it isn’t in an area where you are likely to come in contact with it, learn to identify it and simply avoid it.
