Absolutely beautiful captures Andrew. I don't believe i have seen this bird personally. Such a unique looking fella, and its name too.
Thank you Fee very much ,very interesting bird indeed .

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

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?'
Live and learn.
Great set, Andrew, with the first being my favourite.
Thank you Levina very much,its defintiely a different bird with a different name ,I have only known of this bird for 5 or so years .
Thank you Tina very much

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.
Thank you Al Hope that you get some good shots of them ,I had to be very patient to get them close enough .
Thank you Joe

A difficult bird to photograph Andrew and you nailed both images... haven't seen one of these for years, thanks for posting.
Thank you Dave and your not kidding ,was in my blind for quite sometime waiting for these birds to get close enough ,I did target this bird for my weekend outing so I wasnt coming home without any shots of it. They come to Horicon Marsh every year

super job! I only see them when the breeding plumage is past.
Thank you very much. Weird plumage but I guess the lady Bobo's like it.
