What is This Plant?
I found this weed in my backyard. It's like a berry bush with purple/blue berries about 3/4 cm across. The berries, when squished, are greenish inside, not unlike a blueberry. There are massive amounts of seeds, and birds are fond of the berries. What could this weed be?
Hardiness Zone: 9b

Could it be Polk berries? Birds love them and they are purple.
When birds eat them, their droppings are purple too.

It's a pokeweed. Once any part of the plant turns red (like those stems are) it is poisonous to humans.
