Animal of the day – 12/02/2011 – The Bobolink

Bobolink

The animal of the day is the Bobolink. (Did you know:According to my wife, this guy has a cool name and looks like he’s wearing a hat! He acutally reminds me of my boy Bobby D!

Bobolinks migrate on average 5,000 miles every year, which is huge when you consider how small they are! They’re about 7 inches long, and only weigh 1.5 ounces! One bird was tracked flying 12,000 miles over the course of the year, and up to 1,100 miles in one day!
