This shrub is blooming and setting fruit in my garden. Any idea what it is? Birds are not eating the fruit.

Flowers are very small, yellowish-white, similar to honeysuckle blooms, but way too early for honeysuckle here.

Okay. In looking at lonicera fragrantissima, I do believe that's what it is. Thank you, Stefan. It's Sweet Breath of Spring!

The fruit is fairly tasty in my opinion.
The birds do eat mine because I have seedlings far and wide. In some places it is considered invasive. Not a problem for me as the seedlings are easy to pull.
I have several now. Mother pictured below.
edit to add: it does have some sparse bloom at this time.

Very nice, Kyle Mine is pruned into more of a large shrub shape since is in the border and I want to be able to keep it clear around the base.
