They're baaaack. Yeah! the first Bobolink returned today to our property, Bobolink Farm, named for the fact we have a large hayfield with nesting Bobolinks. We purchased the hayfield in spring 2004 and saved it from development. So the Bobolinks have a home here because of us. We always marvel that they have made the journey from their wintering areas in southern South America (mostly east of the Andes from Peru and central Brazil south to northern Argentina), and flown all the way back to us in southern NH. Wow!
