“Some keep the Sabbath going to Church — I keep it, staying at Home — With a Bobolink for a Chorister — And an Orchard, for a Dome”
Here’s another great video by Lang Elliott celebrating the Bobolink. The Bobolink is quickly becoming one of my favorite birds, with its striking black and white reversed tuxedo appearance. No other North American bird has a white back and black underparts. Bobolinks are found in tall grasslands, uncut pastures, overgrown fields and meadows.
On his blog, A Birder’s Notebook, Les Houser wrote about the Bobolink’s loss of habitat and the disappearance of a once plentiful species due to suburban sprawl and the development of outdoor sports complexes. Give it a read.
It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
