Nature Trivia Question

Answer to Last Week’s Question:
Baby Brown-headed Cowbirds rarely survive in American Goldfinch nests because Goldfinches are strict herbivores and Cowbirds cannot survive on that diet.

This Week’s Question:
The Black Elderberry has five times the natural antioxidants as what other berry?
