According to a bulletin released Wednesday, the hunter killed 150 robins in Pikesville last month. The robins were believed to have been killed outside a business on Reisterstown Rd. around Sept. 29.
Unfortunately for this hunter, American robins are a protected species under the federal Migratory Bird Act. Even though the sweet songbirds are widely seen (and heard), lawmakers wanted to make sure we shared their natural habitat. And we’ll note that the orange on their underside makes them look a bit like a certain bird we tend to like around here.
