Thanks Michael,
If anyone's seen a parrot eating ANY olives off trees, I'd be pleased to
hear from you.
We are most interested in edible olives while they are still on the
trees. (others may have had the distressing experience of discovering
that fresh olives off the trees are not actually edible until

If you could also indicate whether it was an edible olive tree or a wild
or African olive, that would be useful.

Are we talking edible olives, or African Olives with smaller fruit and a
gazetted weed in some areas?
