On this image it is clearly seen that the bird is eating the berry of the Poison Ivy as I learned from Paul Fusco. (thanks Paul)

The autumn color really spices up this image, and the pose of the warbler eating the berry is excellent.

Nicely done Karl. Lovely colours too. Would imagine the Poison Ivy needs the wildlife to distribute its seed, so maybe it would be uncharitable of it to kill off its benefactors...

A lovely behaviour capture of this pretty warbler enjoying a feast of berries, Karl. Its amazing how many birds and animals eat these berries without any problem when some people can have such adverse reactions to the plant.

Looks like it's picking pearls, Karl. What a treat....for the bird. ;). Thanks for the info on poison ivy- very interesting! A very nice scene altogether.
