"Is A Bird in the Hand Worth Two in the Bush?"
Honeysuckle is Invader of the Month

A bird in the hand might be worth much more if the bush is one of three common exotic invasive bush honeysuckles. Studies show that robins' nests in Amur honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii) are more likely to experience predation than nests in native shrubs like Viburnum. When robins and wood thrushes competed for nesting sites in Amur honeysuckle, predation on thrush nests increased, too. Exotic bush honeysuckles have no thorns and a branching structure that may allow predators easier access to songbird nests. For this reason, and the shrub's ability to shade out regenerating tree seedlings and understory herbs, the Maryland Invasive Species Council has chosen bush honeysuckle as the March Invader of the Month.
