Absolutely beautiful captures Andrew. I don't believe i have seen this bird personally. Such a unique looking fella, and its name too. :)

Andrew very nice images of these bobolinks with the first being my favourite for composition, and the fact that it's singing.

Just a suggestion but the second might have looked better had you tried framing the shot as a vertical (portrait format) with the bird in such an upright position.

Wow, what an extraordinary looking bird! Never seen one before. In fact, when I read the title I thought 'Bobolink? What link would that be?' :rolleyes: Live and learn. :) Great set, Andrew, with the first being my favourite.

Great shots, Andrew; the last time I was to the west on a field trip, they had not yet arrived back from S. America, but I look forward to seeing them again; a nifty species for sure and well captured.

A difficult bird to photograph Andrew and you nailed both images... haven't seen one of these for years, thanks for posting.

Thank you Stephen ,I tried the vertical look on the second image thinking it would look best also .....I just didnt like it though.

Put me in the category of not knowing what a Bobolink was. Thank you for the education and especially for sharing the image.

Great shots, Andrew. Never seen one, though I hear there are some not too far away. I may have to go looking, it's an interesting looking critter and should stand out from the rest!

Congratulations on the new one Andrew. He looks a bit more relaxed in the second one but both are good shots.

Haven't seen this bird in over 10 years, congrats on the photos. First one with bill open (singing it's cool song, I imagine) is really good.
