This blackbird was at the top of my list for life birds, I was prepared to wait hours the second day it landed very close, made my day and the trip :) From what I understand the Bobolink is not that common in British Columbia now.
Long-distance migrant. Bobolinks travel about 12,500 miles round-trip every year, in one of the longest migrations of any songbird in the New World. From their northern breeding grounds, they fly in groups through Florida and across the Gulf of Mexico toward their wintering grounds in South America. info from Cornell
