Randy L. Schoff of Michigan City, Indiana, shared with us his beautiful shot of a bobolink, the distinctively plumed field and prairie songbird that not only has been celebrated in poetry for centuries (by Emily Dickinson, William Cullen Bryant and others) but also happens to be one of the most impressive migrants, covering as many as 12,500 miles a year between its northern breeding grounds and its winter home in South America. This one will likely depart soon, probably as part of a flock. The bobolink's exuberant song has been compared to the chirping of Star Wars character R2-D2—listen to this and see what you think: www.youtube.com/watch?v=N32LdaoHoJw. Many thanks, Randy!
