Gray-cheeked Thrush on Pokeweed

This American Pokeweed plant is dripping with juicy dark purple berries and grows beside the driveway at my house. I didn't plant it, it probably grew from a seed in bird droppings. I welcome this plant because the birds, especially thrushes, love the berries. 28 September 2015.
