I was thinking of maybe taking a cutting next time if they are edible for my garden

I don't know this bush but the output of fruit is really impressive. I hope someone will come along and ID it for you. The foliage is very pretty. I wonder if it could be a species of elderberry?

maybe i could grow them for the birds so they eat the berries on it instead of my fruit bushes?

That sounds like a good idea, the birds love them but they are somewhat poisonous to people...too bad they are not some kind of elderberry. If you have the space, it is an attractive plant but i don't know how invasive it might be.

Definitely Ivy. The trouble with them is that the birds spread the seeds all over the garden. We spend our lives pulling out ivy seedlings.
Ivy flowers are a great source of late pollen for bees. Our hedge is often covered in bees in September/October, feasting away.
Ivy flowers and sets seeds when it is mature and the leaves are different shape too. If you take a cutting from the mature stems, you get what is known as an Ivy tree as it keeps its different leaves and non-clinging habit.
