Can anyone please tell me if those berries are edible?
Not for me, for pheasants, parrots.....
Thanks

It's a cotoneaster. Birds will eat the berries. But then they deposit the seeds in bushland etc where the plants are an invasive pest. If I had one I'd get rid of it for that reason.

Most parts of the plant are toxic to mammals. The berries are particularly attractive to small children. They are considered a feral plant in most states.
