BIRD OF THE WEEK — BOBOLINK — PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD group

PLANET EARTH BIRD WORLD has over 1,100 members and over 51,500 photos and videos. 

JOIN AMERICAN BIRD CONSERVANCY

Reflecting its taste for rice and other grains, the Bobolink has been called the “ricebird.” Its bubbling song, which seems to say “bobolink,” is the origin of its unusual name.

Bobolink may travel the equivalent of four or five times around the Earth in its lifetime.

These are birds of prairie and grasslands across the northern United States and southern Canada; they can also been found in uncut pastures, overgrown fields, and meadows during the breeding season. The handsome males wear a unique “backward tuxedo” during breeding and sing while performing conspicuous flight displays.

After breeding, Bobolinks move to different habitats, such as marshes and coastal areas, to molt before starting their long journey south again. Wintering in the southern interior of South America, they’re found in grasslands, marshes, and rice and sorghum fields.
