Looks like Sorghum to me too. I have a dozen bird feeders in my yard and sometimes have Sorghum popping up ... maybe you could grow and market it! Big Grin

It is milo for sure! And yes, it comes up freely from bird seed - I end up with tons of it here every year.

Any guesses which particular sorghum this is? I'd like to add the pics to the plant database but there are a dozen different kinds in there...
