Candice Lowther and I observed several hundred Bobolinks descending into a grain field along Milldale Road, north of Front Royal this morning around 10:30. Because of our position (birds between us and the sun) we were not able to estimate proportion of males to females.
Warren County may be the southeastern most county with regular breeding records for northern Virginia, although there are a few records for Fauquier and Loudoun - western Virginia has more documented breeding records. Presumably this flock represents northern-breeding migrants getting ready to leave for the coast and thence to South America.
