This year I'm seeing a lot of these bushes, and the birds like them, but can't help wonder if I should start removing them because of their invasive nature. Thoughts?

Maybe some sort of Honeysuckle.

Found this information (scroll towards the bottom):

Well it sure sounds like it. I have too many of them and they do encroach on the plants around them. Thanks so much- explains a LOT.

Yes, looks a lot like Tatarian Honeysuckle (Lonicera tatarica).

North American landscapes are better for every one removed/destroyed.

Yes, I have my work cut out for me. Between that, grape vines, and bindweed.... Blinking
