Bobolink back on Canon City area farm

The Canon City area has hosted a small population of breeding Bobolink at least for the past 6-7 years. This species is uncommon on the Colorado front range with most nesting along the northern front range. They are the most bubbling songsters and I usually find them by hearing their beautiful songs first.

I think this view from the back shows how colorful these birds are. The golden yellow feathers on the back of the head can be erected as shown to form a helmet-like appearance. More photos can be seen at
