McCoy Russell congratulates Jennifer and John Russell on their recent backyard habitat certification. Aiming to help native birds thrive, they removed thousands of square feet of invasive ivy and planted hundreds of native plants. They received the Gold Certification.
Birds are an essential part of the natural system. They are essential as pollinators and for seed dispersal of many plants, especially native plants. Birds also feed on a variety of insects, rodents, and other small animals, naturally keeping those populations in check and ensuring a proper balance in their ecosystem.
