    He just ate a little bit of the pointy part on the outside of the trap.

    Part of a point maybe but not sure if part of the plant with points...Think the sap is on the points...Not sure how that sap affects birds...its an attractant so likely sweet but not sure if it has any toxins...

    This is the compound so it can have a toxic affect just not sure of what dose...
    Also seems to be of some use in suppression of cancer...
