Bobolink – Just Jousting

Just Jousting

     The Bobolinks have recently returned to our local North Idaho area and some have been putting on quite a show.  Here, a couple of males in breeding mode skirmish briefly for supremacy.  The bird on the right [and above] had been stationed on the fence post.  He suddenly launched airborne as a challenger came in low, fast and furious.  They were just jousting.
