Straw Colored Hat

Springbrook Prairie
SB-11-0729

A bobolink perches on a dying goldenrod stem in an emerald grassland. The bobolink has a white back and black underparts, similar to wearing a tuxedo backwards, along with a brilliant straw-colored patch on its head. The colors of this bubbling, virtuosic songbird make it unique in North America.
