Pigeon berry seems like a bit of a slur really when you consider that the slang name for pigeons is "flying rats"!

Meanie:

LOL! :>) Yes, pigeons are such a problem here along with the millions of doves. The doves are more of a problem here (where I live) than that pigeons. Downtown and other areas the pigeons are a bigger problem.

Biggest problem with doves is that you can't get a decent meal out of them- that's the one plus point of pigeons!

It's also called Golden Dewdrop, because it develops many golden-colored berries.

Think we'll stick to Golden Dewdrop!
