Does anyone know if garden birds eat the olives from trees - I have 3 in my garden that are full of fruit
Hi Jane welcome to the community.
A quick google found this though it is from New Zealand but does mention introduced birds which happen to be ours
If the tree does form fruit then the most likely culprit is birds eating the fruit. A wide range of introduced birds are known to eat olives including blackbirds, song thrushes, starlings, doves and mynahs, and it's likely many native birds feed on them, too.
