There is an area a few kilometers from my house that has some large communication towers, and they leave the grass uncut till late summer. This makes it a haven for grassland birds who have suffered from recent agricultural practice of early grassland cutting and bailing.

It is always a treat to hear the bubbly songs of Bobolinks when they return to breed.

The male plumage is unusual because it is light above which would seem to make it an easier target for overhead birds of prey.

In the background, Savannah Sparrows and Eastern Meadowlarks are singing.
