These are growing in cane-like fashion in a "patch" in some timber on our farm. I've never seen them before now. Please help ID. I included my finger to help show scale. They are tiny little "berries".

Maybe American Beautyberry? The berries are darker in your pic, but that could be due to shaded conditions, or as yet unripe. If the suirrels leave it alone, berries can hang on through most of the winter.

Actually, I'm hearing buckbrush (Symphoriocarpus orbiculatus) from other folks that seem to be a better ID. Also called Indian current and coralberry. Buckbrush does seem to be a better fit.
