As far as the critters, "pretty much anything that can swim or fly will be OK," Peditto said.
They may, however, be a tad confused.
Birds starting to head south for the winter may have been blown off course by the storm, and local birds might have found themselves at a strange feeder without much memory of how they got there.
David Horvath, owner of the Wild Bird Centers in Columbia and Severna Park, says the post-storm period may provide a bonus for bird watchers.
"So everyone is listening to the Rare Bird Alert," he said of the Audubon Naturalist Society hot line.
Horvath said birds are not in danger. "They're not usually blown so far off course that there's nothing they can eat," he said. "They're resourceful enough that they can find something to eat."
A traditional hot spot for out-of-town company?
"County landfills," said Horvath, laughing. "All of the birders end up down there. You never know."

"And if you see something rare," Horvath said, "tell people and share the excitement."
