This report is for a sighting a week ago, July 22nd.  Part of the delay 
was due to determining what the bands signified.

Ron Payne and I observed a male Bobolink in breeding plumage with five 
other bobolinks of undetermined age and sex in at the end of Westin 
Road, where it becomes State Forest Road 0.4 miles from Greenbush Road 
in Ferrisburgh.  They were feeding on poison parsnip amid reed-canary 
grass at the edge of a field (44.2292, 73.2507) behind a house at the 
edge of Little Otter Creek WMA.

The male in breeding plumage wore on the right leg a green band above a 
yellow band.  On the left leg there was a metal band above a white 
band.  Allan Strong of the University of Vermont informs us that the 
bird was banded in 2005 in a field along O'Neil Rd, just west of 
Shelburne Falls Road, in the town of Hinesburg.  This is a little over 9 
miles away as the Bobolink flies.  Allan states: "Not far given our how 
our friends fly in a single year.  But over 80% of birds breed on the 
same field as the previous year, so a pretty big move with respect to 
breeding dispersal."  An eight year old Bobolink is definitely an old, 
notably long-lived bird.

The list of birds for our walk along State Forest Road in Little Otter 
Creek WMA is below.
