Ideas for short, evergreen tree near house, 10 to 15 ft. tall

Moved to this house. 2 Ligustrums (tree shaped) were planted 8 inches from house long ago!!! and then not cared for properly, so one has disease issues and over 12 stems (trunks?). I have taken them out and want ideas of what I could plant there that are bird friendly (nests and year round protecting/hiding). Location is Zone 7, west side of house. Property has a sprinkler system. Soil good (soil test not received yet), good drainage. Loved the ligustrums, but landscaper had said not to replant one further out. It needs to help shade a small window from the low winter sun. I am putting in butterfly garden for the bees, butterflies, hummingbirds. Is there a good tall shrub or short tree that has leaves all year long and be something my critters and I would enjoy year round. It is on corner of house and outer side will be semi hiding a garden shed I hope to install and improve the neighbor’s view.
