Bobolink

Dolichonyx oryzivorus

Like most members of this “Blackbird” clan, the Bobolink is in the family Icteridae. While the breeding range for this bird is in the northern half of the USA and some of southern Canada, they winter rather far south in the south central regions of South America. Prime breeding habitats are open grassy fields, especially hay fields, across North America.
