Garden For Wildlife - Episode 7: Nature’s Best Hope with Dr. Doug Tallamy

Saving birds requires saving the insects that host on NATIVE plants evolved over eons...90% of NA songbirds are insect eaters.A Must see video..Plant Native  and weed the ornamentals and non natives..don't buy nursery stuff that pushes colorful non native plants..

PS  Insects are declining worldwide due to native plant loss and pesticides and fertilizers and rampant spraying of yards for mosquitoes ( not necessary , there are better ways like larvicide.. and dragonfly garden habitat you can design or bat houses)
