The fruits of Poison Ivy are grapelike clusters of tiny, white, pumpkin-shaped seeds with an off-white or pale yellow rind. Flickers and other woodpeckers are fond of them, along with sapsuckers, thrushes, pheasants and quail. The rind provides food to the birds while the seeds usually pass on through their gut unharmed and, in this way, birds are the agent for dispersal of Poison Ivy seeds.
