Let’s move away from the shoreline and into a meadow where you’ll find this bird, a male Bobolink. Often you’ll hear his bubbly, tinkling song before you see him. Usually, when birds have both light and dark feathers, the light ones are on the underside. The Bobolink seems to have this backwards. His yellow “cap” always makes me smile; it looks like he’s wearing a curly blond wig. Bobolinks nest in hayfields or wet meadows across most of the northern United States and southern Canada. In winter, they make a long migration trip to southern South America.
