I recently heard Douglas Tallamy the author of Nature’s Best Hope interviewed by a Spokane gardener. The author advocates for homeowners to turn their yards into conservation corridors and makes a compelling case for planting natives.
The subtitle is A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Backyard.
Over the last 20+ years, my late husband and I planted thousands of native trees and shrubs in multiple corridors across our property in rural Thurston county. I can attest that it works.

Interesting BUT if you want to our increasingly threatened native birds, garden as much as possible with the native plants that these species rely upon for food, nesting, shelter. Gardening with our native plants allow you to provide not just for nesting and wintering birds but also migrating ones.
They also help retain our declining insects that birds and many other animals rely upon.
We must do this for our native birds or risk losing them.
