Yep, looks like privet to me. It grows in this area like crazy. It is a nuisance. It is an invasive plant also. However, bees love it and it makes GREAT honey, or at least its one of my favorites. Very strong taste and darker in color than clover or wildflower honey. There was a thread on here last week and someone wrote that they didn't like the honey, so YMMV.
Looks a lot like the privet in my area. The blooms look bigger, but maybe just a close photo. I think privet is the main honey maker for me, followed by clover. Most people do not like privet, but beekeepers here love it. The honey is very good, a little darker than clover, nice flavor.
