This would be a start but I doubt it would have a significant impact on
many introduced species as they are far too entrenched.  Look at the number
of starlings in the rural landscape where they nest in remnant eucalypts.
Sparrows would be just as happy in an urban environment that was planting
with nothing but natives as, I expect, would mynas.
