Agreed 100%. Plant natives. There was a great webinar presentation
sponsored by WOS or a local Audubon group a few months ago. The expert
shared how chickadees need 6,000 to 10,000 moth caterpillars to fledge a
nest of chicks. Wow! And where do they get these? Mostly from native
alder, birch, and bitter cherry trees.
