Female Bobolink

Went birding this past weekend looking specifically for Bobolinks and Dickcissels. We got lucky on one account, a female Bobolink. It was a beautiful location to spend four/five hours. Along with the Bobolink, we spotted: Kingfisher, Cardinal, Canada Goose, Gold Finch, Towhee, Orchard Oriole, Red-winged Blackbird, Song Sparrow, Indigo Bunting, snapping turtle, Eastern Blue tails, and others. The Blue tails were especially friendly. At any one time I had at least one on me and often had five.
