You have a great selection already! I'd add native honeysuckle, to attract hummingbirds. They also love the annual black-and-blue salvia. And sunflowers for finches. All three attract bees as well.
I know you said just one, but that's an impossible ask! I'll stop at those three...

If you could only plant one plant (annual, perennial, shrub or small tree) to attract birds what would it be? Much of my landscaping is for that purpose and therefore I've got bayberry, dogwoods, hawthorne, shadbush, crabapples, echinacea, winterberry among others but I'm curious what locals think I should add or add more of.
