Saskatoon Serviceberry (Amelanchier alnifolia)

''Amelanchier alnifolia'', the saskatoon, Pacific serviceberry, western serviceberry, alder-leaf shadbush, dwarf shadbush, chuckley pear, or western juneberry, is a shrub with edible berry-like fruit, native to North America from Alaska across most of western Canada and in the western and north central United States. Historically it was also called "pigeon berry". It grows from sea level in the north of the range, up to 2,600 m elevation in California and 3,400 m in the Rocky Mountains.
