I'm pretty sure these aren't edible, but I thought they looked pretty nice (almost fall-like though I'm not really ready for that yet) so I took a photo while stalking that rabbit.

Have you seen any birds pecking at them?

Not yet. But they are pretty new and I suspect the robins and sparrows will like them.

@srhelmer If the birds like them, then the berries are edible though maybe not taste good.

These look very much like Rowan or Mountain Ash, though the leaves are different. That means that they are probably Sorbus and very likely edible, though they probably have sizeable pits and an unappetising flesh. I'd be inclined to make a jelly from them, if I were going to do anything. Rowan jelly is nothing to write home about but goes well with game and venison.

They look quite delicious. So is it near the place you live?
