Bobolink

We spotted a small flock of Bobolink on the levy near the Mississippi River.  The males were dressed in their attractive spring plumage.  After breeding season, they will molt and take on the buff-brown colors of the female.

… Upon a tuft of meadow grass,
While thy loved-one tends the nest,
Thou swayest as the breezes pass,
Unburthening thine o’erfull breast
Of the crowded songs that fill it,
Just as joy may choose to will it …
~James Russell Lowell

    • I have to admit that I had to look this one up myself. I have heard of the Bobolink, but had no idea what it looked like. They tend to stay in uncut fields or pastures. I have never see one at a feeder.
