EXCELLENT!! We have dry areas up north and wet and dry areas both down in southeast lower. I'll get the book for more suggestions and start the planting program later this spring.

Birdscaping in the Midwest (Mariette Nowalk, Univ. of Wisconsin Press) gives numerous suggestions for native shrubs that are beneficial to many birds, including timberdoodles.
For moderately dry areas, consider dogwoods, hazels and serviceberries. For wetter areas, spicebush, ninebark and pussy willows do well.
I usually buy these from Wil dType Nursery in Mason, MI (near East Lansing); they are also available from local conservation district sales.
