IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern
A distinctive bird of open grasslands, the Bobolink is the only American bird that is black underneath and white on the back. This coloring makes the male stand out while he is performing his displays. After breeding he changes into a drab, camouflaged plumage to spend the rest of the year.
Song a rolling, bubbling, jangling series of notes; given in flight. Call a harsh "chek." Flight note a clear "pink."
