Baltimore Living

Best Place to See Wildlife

Mount Washington

Don’t tell Ted Nugent about Mount Washington. On any given morning, you’re as likely to espy a 10-point buck chowing down on someone’s carefully tended plant beds as are to you see a Prius pulling into the Whole Foods parking lot. But the wild kingdom doesn’t stop with Bambi and friends. Other critters spotted in Baltimore’s leafiest ’hood include vultures, ducks, raccoons, opossums, owls, chickens, coyotes, snakes, and turtles. The neighborhood listserv regularly buzzes with postings about sightings of “Black-crowned Night Herons,” “mysterious moths,” and unidentified creatures slithering out of the sewers. While Mount Washington will never be Duck Dynasty, it’s still an awesome place to set up a bird blind; you never know what you’ll spot.
