As spring arrives in Maryland, between the last patches of snow, blades of grass, and early flowers reach for the warmth of the sun.

The Baltimore area is notable for its generously wooded areas and its miles of shoreline, both of which are excellent habitats for our avian friends. If you've been actively walking the woods and shores more than usual, and you've begun to wonder about the local birds you've spotted, the good news is it's easier than ever to become a bona fide birdwatcher and identify what you're seeing and hearing.
The investment can be as budget-busting or as modest as you choose: From an inexpensive set of binoculars to a state-of-the-art spotting scope, camera, and tripod, but you will need enhanced vision to track birds. Another helpful and usually free aid is an app such as BirdNET of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, which records the sound of a particular bird and then analyzes it for identification.
If you're looking for a home or listing yours among Baltimore homes for sale, there are some prime bird-watching spots near your neighborhood of choice. Here are five great places.
