Birds and Burning Bush seeds?

5 years ago

I planted a bunch of Burning Bushes before I knew they were invasive in some places. Anyhow.......I've seen sparrows eating the seeds in the past. Today, I noticed seeds everywhere on the ground/sidewalk, not near where I threw birdseed in the drive, but closer to the burning bushes.

They are everywhere and look whole. I do see some red pulp-like stuff around some of them, which made me think they were Burning Bush seeds. I've just never seen so many on the ground. Maybe they are undigestible? At first I thought these were some of the seeds I had thrown out in the driveway, but I'm pretty sure they're burning bush seeds. Anyone know anything about these seeds and if the birds poop them out whole?
