Bobolink (Dolichonyx oryzivorus), Island STP, Lake Havasu City, Mohave County

This Bobolink was found and photographed by David Vander Pluym on 21 May 2014 and also photographed by Bobby Wilcox on 21 May.

Once a rare but regular fall migrant and occasional breeder in eastern Arizona, Bobolink in recent years has become very rare and was added to the list of review species.

The black head with buff nape patch and white scapulars, lower back and rump are unique.
