Bobolink

It is always a thrill when I see a bird that I have never seen before.  And an even bigger thrill when I am able to get pictures of it!

Today I saw 4 Bobolinks.  According to my bird book, the springtime Bobolinks are the “only North American land birds that are dark below and light above.”

    I’ve never heard of a bobolink before let alone caught one in pictures!

    Whenever I see the word “bobolink” I say it in my head the same way the bird sounds when it ‘chirps’ it’s name! Thanks for a smile today!
