Bobolink Dolichonyx oryzivorus

Bobolinks spend their summers breeding in lower Canada and the northern United States.  After breeding, they migrate to South America.

In Florida, Bobolinks are a common migrant in spring (April-May), frequently seen in flocks of hundreds feeding in agricultural fields and pastures as they make their way north.  They are not as common in fall (August-October) when they migrate south.  They feed in fields north of Florida and usually fly over Florida on their way to South America.
