As a comment about Tea Viburnum (Viburnum setigerum), Newyorkrita wrote:

I originally planted seven shrubs of Tea Viburnum in my garden because I had read that the fruit is very attractive to overwintering Bluebirds. I have never seen a Bluebird here in my garden yet and I have had the shrubs for many years. As far as I can see nothing eats the fruit as it lasts all thru the winter and is still hanging on in the spring.

Attractive orange berries on graceful slender shrubs.

I can't answer to whether this is a favorite of bluebirds or not, but it sure is a favorite of mine. Your excellent photos just reinforce how handsome this shrub is - and redouble my interest in someday being able to visit such a fine garden as yours.

The shrubs and fruit are beautiful and have really grown nicely. I guess there just are no bluebirds around to find them! But I am very glad I planted them.
