T-59 : Berry Birdies

Today I saw birds out the window flitting and fleeting.  When I approached to see what was the matter it didn't take long to see that they were voraciously eating some sort of berry from trees that had already dropped everything but.  I remember seeing a similar sight at the in-laws' tree in Montana.  Apparently it happens more than I realized.  In fact, BHG.com even goes so far as to prescribe which types of berry plants will attract birds in your backyard: (http://www.bhg.com/gardening/design/nature-lovers/best-berry-plants-for-birds/).  Any idea why they wait until mid-December?
