Shrub identification

Asked July 16, 2018, 10:29 AM EDT

I have a tall shrub (about 15 ft) in my backyard with berries that turn from yellowish to red, then shrivel to leave a black seed. I would like to find out what it is and whether the berries are poison, as I have a baby who often puts things in her mouth.

The plant in the photos is a kind of honeysuckle. Generally speaking, honeysuckle berries are considered inedible and mildly toxic.
