Possibly a pyracantha?

Christopher Cooke

Yes most definitely pyracantha bush. I used to watch hummingbird birds eat the fermented berries on the bush in my parents’ yard and fly drunken loops

Peter Garrison

Blackbirds get dizzy on them too.
Warning: Don’t park near the pyracantha bushes, the bird droppings are caustic!


Indeed, the birds get loopy on the fermented berries and the juice must do something to their gut -- I forgot about the messy droppings! They will definitely do a number on your car and what a mess on the sidewalk!


This is a shrub/bush. Not a tree. Very pretty though.
