Not the Baltimore Orioles–at least, not the baseball team.

Migratory bird season is bringing some beautiful winged creatures through Baltimore right now, including scarlet tanagers, yellow-crowned night herons, and chimney swifts that swirl around and dive into industrial chimneys by the hundreds at dusk.

To find out more, Nathan Sterner visits Maryland Ornithological Society president Mark Johnson as he bands birds at Eden Mill Nature Center in northern Harford County.

You, too, can observe Dr. Johnson bird banding at Eden Mill, on May 25 and June 1.

International Migratory Bird Day is Saturday: get outside!
