Bobolink

Bobolinks are sparrow-sized birds that until recently appeared in flocks at local meadows during spring migrations. Sad to say, populations are in steep decline, and only several were seen in Wayne County in spring 2014.

Bobolinks overwinter as far south as Argentina and routinely fly hundreds of miles a day in migration. The male bobolink at left, wind ruffling its feathers, was resting on a power pole in Wayne County, near Calkins.
