Poison Ivy (Toxicodendron radicans). There is climbing and non climbing poison ivy. This is the shrub form. You can tell it is poison ivy by the three connected leaves. To remember not to touch it, there is the saying "Leaves of three, let it be." Although Poison Ivy is poisonous to people, birds love to eat the white berries in fall and winter. It is one of the first plants to change color in the fall, turning into a beautiful crimson red.
