One of the strangest looking birds I've seen, but quite interesting. The gold feathers on the back of the head are a bit longer than those of the face, rather like a hat added on. Likewise, the white feathering on the wing and back are also a bit longer and almost wavey looking. The tail has a great zig zag shape that I haven't noticed on any other birds. Bobolink are spring grassland nesters in the midwest.
