There are many benefits to maintaining urban forests, including the preservation of wildlife habitat. Throughout the year, trees are home to migrating and native birds, essential for controlling troublesome pests like mice and invasive insects. This time of year brings temperatures dipping below zero, and the occasional snowfall, but locals can still hear the call of red wing blackbirds around lake and marsh zones, and the ever-present chickadees. Other common (and gorgeous) winter birds are Bohemian waxwings, Steller’s jays, and magpies. These birds harvest berries year ‘round and live off winter stashes, but they also eat the seeds of tree cones, and dispersing some for future growth. Raptors like rough-legged hawks and the Northern pygmy owls are commonly seen flying over farmland, keeping rodent populations in check.
