Looks like Len and Dian Jellicoe have found the first breeding record of this species for the Lillooet area. Today Ian Routley found 2 Bobolinks on the Diamond S Ranch carrying food and yesterday the male was doing display flights. This is 7-7 1/2 kilometers from the highway through Pavillion up to the grasslands.

Great find Len and Dian!

Here is a lovely photo that Len got of the male

Ian Routley had all three birds today and was kind enough to provide more directions to the colony. The birds are located 8 kms from the turnoff at Pavilion reserve. There is an active MOBL box in the copse of Aspen at the crest of a small hill and the Bobolink are in the field to the west. Ian Routley got a beautiful shot of the female today (male in the background):
