No  expert here either, but between the hackberries, various types of
viburnums  and mahonias, privets, VA creeper, wild ivies and one
beautyberry - there  are enough berries here to make them happy.  Plus
feeders and  sunflowers and the millet and wheat I allow to grow in the
wilder areas to  suit most birds.  There's the brush "cave" for the
ground lovers to  hide/roost in and roosting pockets, plus the trees to
nest in.
Even left  one dead tree in the back corner for the woodpeckers and
such.  And  all the understory shrubs provide plenty of cover, along w/
the  honeysuckles that some bird is actually roosting in this year
which is  cool.  I think diversity is the key.  Have 5 bird baths too. 
And  this place isn't big by any stretch of the imagination
