Never got around to posting a picture for last week’s BPW. I was intending to show a Bobolink from last year based on the ones I saw over the weekend, but I’ll do better than that and show one I found this weekend in my home atlas block.
Rock Meadow is in the process of having the meadows restored with a lot of work being done with invasive plant removal and it looks like it’s paying off. This was the only one I saw but I’d say there’s a good chance of having them breeding by the end of the atlas in two years.
And since I have the picture, this is the one I was planning on using last week. It was a young bird and presumably a postbreeding dispersal in my Dunstable block (they could be in the farm fields but this was not in breeding habitat).

Gorgeous shots of the Bobolink!
Very nice photos! Bobolinks are a new bird to me and so far I’ve only seen breeding males (and females). I think they will be harder to ID when they are all in non-breeding plumage.
Nice photos and good to hear that there is restoration work being done on the meadows and invasive species being taken out.
The new photo is absolutely gorgeous.
Very cool! I saw them for the first time just a couple months ago and fell in love with them.
