Bobolink photograph   Save
Alvin Staffan Natural History Collection
Description: The bobolink, Dolichonyx oryzivorus, is found in Ohio during its spring migration from South America. The first two photographs show a male bobolink feeding its young, while the female bird is shown in the last two photographs. In the nineteenth century the bobolink established itself in Ohio due to the abundance of fields, which provide plenty of seed for the birds to eat. Numbers have been reduced due the increase of forested land in the state. The photographs measure 3" x 3" (7.62 x 7.62 cm). View on Ohio Memory.
