Aren't they releasing Fishers, which are also arboreal and larger than Marten (Martin being a bird)

There has been a couple releases of Martins in the Olympic National Park
(The mammal not the bird). Now they are releasing them in the Cascades. I
was wondering, it seems like a branch nesting bird like a Marbled murrelet
would be a fine snack for arboreal predator like a Martin. Anybody know
anything about this? Are we trading one endangered species for another?
