At least 45 bobolinks were present in the fields on Union St in Brandon this morning, a mix of males, females and fledged young feeding on seed heads. The males were losing their nuptial plumages.
A young raven squawked in the background to which an adult answered while a Willow flycatcher was "fitzbewing". Song and swamp sparrows sang, redwings carrying food, and lots of barn swallows swooping by me.
July is fast coming to an end but still lots to see.
