Birds are animals with backbones with a beak, wings, feathers, two legs, lay eggs, and are warm-blooded. Some birds, like the Mourning Dove, live in Maryland all year long. Others, like Osprey, only live in Maryland for part of the year. There are hundreds of species, or types, of birds that rely on the Chesapeake Bay region for food, water, shelter, and space.
