Bobolink range

It is often said that the Bobolink has the colours on its back that should be on its breast. The population of these field birds are in steep decline mainly due to the harvesting practices of the North America farmers. The hay is being removed from the fields before the young bobolinks are fledged, leading to a very large percentage of the young not reaching maturity. These birds migrate into South America every fall and return to North America every spring. The Bobolink has been a migrant in Cuba.
