Some birds seem to have a pretty cushy life in Columbia. Peanut and I were sitting in the court area in front of Nordstrom this Saturday when she spotted this little bird fearlessly darting around the tables. While other birds have to deal with the elements and other predators, this little guy has the run of the mall.Compare that lifestyle with these birds I spotted hanging out in the Patapsco River in Ellicott City.
This cold weather also got me yearning for another group of local birds. It won’t be long before the boys of summer will be heading south for spring training and yet another hopeful season will commence in Baltimore.
