We are doing a Bio project and need some help identifying species. We are in West Tennessee and these were taken in mid October. The plant is a bush with green (changing to yellow) leaves, they are ovalesque in shape. The berries are quite small and dark colored, a dark blue perhaps. They are smooth and not dimpled. Nor or they very clustered together.

I was thinking more of Ampelopsis.

Ligustrum vulgare, or the wild privet. Very common to your area. This is also called the European privet. Found all over eastern mid-atlantic states. bob

Ligustrum vulgare I think has narrower leaves. Leaf shape suggests Ligustrum ovalifolium

Now I can see it - definitely Ligustrum as Resin mentioned earlier and I agree with the species as mentioned by singhg45
