Observation Time: 9:30 a.m.
Observation Location: Moose Hill Farm (formerly the Kendall Estate)
Common Name: Bobolink

Comments: The big pasture at the Trustees of Reservations’ Moose Hill Farm is ideal breeding habitat for bobolinks. Meadow habitat is not nearly as prevalent in Massachusetts since industry replaced agriculture, and forests grew back in former pasture lands.
