Welcome to Project Noah horsesablessing13
Nice first spotting,congrats and thanks for sharing
We hope you like the site as much we do; there are many features you can explore:
We invite you to go to http://www.projectnoah.org/faq where you will find the purpose and “rules” of Project Noah.
There is a blog http://blog.projectnoah.org/ where we post articles from spotters with special insight into different organisms.
There are also the chats for help with identification, and to comment on your own and others’ spottings.
Look at the global and local missions to put your spottings into: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions

Nodal and internodal space on the twigs and leaf present as Cornus (to me). Red twigs suggest red twig dogwood (C. sericea). My confidence level = 65% it is Cornus... not as confident as to my specie identification. Michael Dirr's book is a great field reference, though...
