I had some logging done after a storm a couple years ago, I have some of these coming up now.
Can someone identify?

Elderberry

Take that back not quite the same as our elderberry which has black berries in a more flat topped cluster.

That's red elderberry. Flowers in the spring, red berries inedible to humans, but other wildlife eat it

Black elderberry is a different species, similar leaf and growth form but flowers mid summer, black berries late summer. Those berries are edible, that's what used in elderberry wine, etc

That was another thing that threw me. Ours down here aside from being black just finished up blooming and just now has fruit set. Those red ones look to be ripe or nearly so. Our's are another month and a half to ripe.

The berries from those red elderberry bushes are edible when cooked, just like the black elderberries are. People use them for jellies and syrups. They have similar medicinal properties to the black elderberries. The red are supposed to be more bitter, but I've never had an opportunity to try them. Elderberry syrup is worth a lot of money. I saw it sell for as high as $48.00 an ounce during the worst of the Covid epidemic. Elderberry has a chemical in it that blocks viruses from being able to attach into human cells to make more of that virus.
