Yesterday I saw the first bobolinks of my life. These are cool looking birds. I found the two meadows where the male bobolinks were singing to find a mate while on my bike. Cycling often helps me ID locations where I will return later by car for some serious birding. Such was the case with my bobolinks. This morning at sunrise I drove to the two meadows in search of the bird, and was successful! Here are the results. I also was serenaded by a sandhill crane, but I do not believe anyone alive today could call its song melodious!
