I have a plant that has come up in my yard. I didn't plant it. Answered

It has small round leaves that are dark green, and seem to be in "bunches". In the evening they fold in half. It's been there all summer and seems to get bigger every day. It is now about 3 to 4 feet tall. It dosn't look quite like a bush..it has a more of a tree look to it's branches. I don't know if it matters...but it has come up under a bird feeder. I can't find a picture of what it might be anywhere, or I just don't know where to look. It's really nice looking, and I like it, but I don't know if it's worth keeping. Also I live in southern Delaware...anything you might think it is will be helpful. Thank you

Not something I recognise from the description - Any chance of posting a picture. I think the fact it came up under the bird feeder is very relevant. Sometimes all sorts of weird and wonderful (and occasionally illegal) things grow from dropped seed.

... or from seeds in droppings. If you posted a picture of it somewhere, that would improve your odds of getting an accurate answer.
