The Sun City  Bird Club Urges You to Use Native Plants

Why? Native plants, especially trees that are native to this area, provide as much as 35 times more food for birds than exotic plants. In order to successfully raise a brood, songbird parents must feed their nestlings more than 8,000 insects. These beneficial insects, including butterfly and moth larvae, proliferate on native trees like oaks. Migrating birds also feed on beneficial insects. See Gardening for Life  The most important native plant in your yard is your oak tree. Nurture it, don’t spray it. (Links to more native plant information.)
