It has come to my personal interest that more and more birds are taking up walking more often than they did, nearly occupying this small part of their lives more and more to using their legs to move short distances than they would with their wings. I am not referring to birds like geese, ducks, or swans but warbler, starlings, crows, chickadees, and even seagulls. You will notice when you are driving towards some birds who are in the middle of the street that they tend to walk out of your way more so than fly. Maybe it is evolution.
