Weekday Bobolink Walk

May 14 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
Cost: Free

Join DNRT Land Manager Linda Vanderveer for a stroll through Ocean View Farm, searching for bobolinks. Bobolinks are small songbirds with large, somewhat flat heads, short necks, and short tails. They are related to blackbirds and orioles, and they have a similar shaped, sharply pointed bill. In spring, male Bobolinks give conspicuous display flights low over grasslands, fluttering their wings while singing. At other times, Bobolinks stay hidden in tall grasses or brush, clinging to seed heads or foraging on the ground amid the stems. They often migrate in large flocks.
