Non-native plants create food deserts for birds 

From the National Audubon Society:  Our small decisions about landscaping have big implications in the lives of birds. According to new research, the plants in your garden can help determine whether bird and bug populations boom…or crash. Learn what ecologists discovered—and how you can help your local birds.  ...

researchers at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute wanted to know how plants in human-managed landscapes affect the reproductive success of resident bird populations—a simple question that no one had answered before. The team’s research, published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, found only one distinction that determines if a spot is a boom or a bust for a bird population: whether it has plants native to the area.
