Default Exotic Causing Death to Waxwings

I saw this article posted by a like-minded friend on Facebook.

This was new to me:

Invasive bushes in Decatur killing cedar waxwings | Decaturish - Locally sourced news

Good info to know. Could you also post this info in the Invasive Species forum, it could soon get lost in News and Current Events.

Although the article deals specifically with Cedar Waxwings, it seems likely to me that other berry consuming birds are going to suffer the same fate.

Yikes. That bush is everywhere down south.

While searching for a forum in which to post, I considered that forum.

I'll try posting it there now.

I saw that, too! We must have similar like-minded Facebook friends. I haven't read it yet, though.

I shared the same article on a variety of FB forums in which I participate. Our local Master Gardeners FB page even picked it up.

We are very fortunate here in that several of the master gardeners are also serious naturalists. Take a look at the program they are sponsoring this month: http://washington.osu.edu/events/global-climate-change-and-gardening.

I may finally need to take the master gardeners course.
