[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bobolink Male sitting on poison ivy. The males sit at the tops of weeds until something gets close, then they fly to another location away from the nest and will keep moving to another location to draw attention away from the nest. Sometimes they drop down out of sight into the tall grass. See last photo I posted of the female's coloring. Fledglings look like the female.

Hello Debbie,

Better him than I(re: 'sitting on the poison ivy').;) Lovely capture of this Bobolink with impressive focus and in fine lighting producing rich, true colors. I also like the behind pov and the timing of the turn of his neck. Well done!

Hello Debbie,
A great shot of this beautiful male Bobolink. The angle shows of it's colorful plumage very nicely. You made good eye contact and colors look true and natural. Well done!!
This is one bird that has eluded me so far. I used to see them here in my area of Ohio as a young boy, but they seemed to have disappeared. I would love to see one again and capture a photo of it.
