Tree ID HELP NEEDED

Can anyone tell me what tree this fruit/seed comes from? I couldn't take a pic of the tree but it was filled with this fruit. It kinda looked like a Dogwood tree to me but obviously it isn't... Do you know if anything eats the fruit - birds, squirrels, skunks, groundhogs etc?

I'm heading to Wildwood for the fireman's convention. Have a great weekend!

I believe it's the fruit of a Japanese Dogwood.

Spot on Patrick. I know you're not a fan of non-natives, but this is an attractive tree. I was doing some research online and birds don't seem to like the fruit very much, so it's a bust for me. I'll be planting some native dogwoods shortly and I already have a few in the garden. I just like the look of the Japanese Dogwood. Thanks for the info!
