Bird Report 080310: Bobolinks at Mill Creek

Ray Duffy reports: "I did an evening walk at Mill Creek Marsh [Monday] evening.  I saw at least two male bobolinks getting flushed from the spartina and into a tree.

"They were chasing what I'm assuming where female bobolinks but there was also an immature/female baltimore oriole that was fighing with a mockingbird.

"I got a shot of one male, but he was not out in the open so it's not a great shot.  Definitely a male.  Big white spot on the head and on the butt.  He's starting to fade out of breeding colors, showing pathes of yellowish feathers."
