Bobolink "The Rowdy of the Meadow"

Syracuse, Davis County, West Weber, Weber County, and Huntsville, Weber County, Utah, June 2008 & May 2011. Although not common to Utah, these birds are from three small nesting colonies in Northern Utah. Bobolinks migrate 12,500 miles to South America each fall and back in the spring.
After spending a few days in the field with the noisy (rowdy) Bobolink, one of Emily Dickenson's poems has refreshing , new meaning.

"The Bobolink is gone - The Rowdy of the Meadow -
And no one swaggers now but me -
The Presbyterian (Mormon) Birds can now resume the Meeting
He gaily interrupted that overflowing Day
When opening the Sabbath in their afflictive Way
He bowed to Heaven instead of Earth
And shouted "Let us pray"
Emily Dickenson
