This video celebrates the amazing song of the Bobolink, described by one author as "a mad, wreckless song fantasia—an outbreak of pentup irrepressible glee," and by another as "a bubbling delirium of ecstatic music that flows from the gifted throat of the bird like sparkling champagne."
The Bobolink is a member of the Blackbird family. It frequents grassy meadows of the northern states and adjacent Canada. Also referred to as "skunk blackbird," the male has striking black-and-white plumage, making identification easy. Females are a buffy yellow-brown.
