It has bright red berries. Not sure if the berries are edible.

Looks like honeysuckle, to me.

Yes, one of the non-native shrub honeysuckles. Likely considered an invasive in your area.

I totally forget about the mature honeysuckles. In our area, there is a lot of honeysuckles. The plant can take either vine form or shrub form and one single plant can be both. I have already taken out many large bushes.

Are the berries considered edible? I know birds like them.

Tartarian honeysuckle. Lonicera tartarica. Berries are mildy toxic to humans, bitter and unpalatable.
