Need help identifying these bushes in my backyard …

    Top pic is nandina… invasive, poisonous to birds…
    Apparently, they die a painful death after eating nandina berries…

    I’ve been digging all of my nandinas out… I’d rather have the birds, over poisonous cyanide-laced berries.

    Second photo is pokeweed. While the seeds are poisonous if you chew them, the plant is native, attractive, bird-friendly…
    I’ve posted a picture of a mockingbird eating poke berries… here:
