Nice exposure on such a contrasty male, Herb. I can almost hear his flight call in the 1st.

Herb, I have question about your great shots...how do you get as close as you do? I did a survey of Bobolinks here in Oregon (at Malhuer) and couldn't begin to get that close to displaying males. The ones I was counting were in flooded fields with mixed grasslands.

Thanks Vic, I usually only see females, but this time, most of them are egg sitting, so the breeding males are the norm.

Excellent series of shots Herb love the backgrounds! I'm not seeing many females but from your nest shot I see why. The males where I shoot stake out areas and hang close to it. They tolerate me very well and let me get close, in fact some flight shots fill the frame but I miss most of them lol. What a cool bird...
