I have planted as many berry-producing shrubs as I can squeeze into the yard. It's interesting to see which ones get eaten and when. Some, like the serviceberries get snapped up as soon as they ripen. Others persist well into the winter and seem to get eaten when birds return in the early spring. Here's what is out there now:

Winterberries (Ilex verticillata)

Rose hips (Rosa virginiana)

American cranberry bush (Viburnum trilobum)
