May has swooshed by in one amazing fog! Your blogger has traipsed all across this state and into another! I admit, these blog posts got a bit behind as I was just running too hard and having too much fun to sit down to write.

Join us for a fun free event. You'll see more Bobolinks than you can shake a stick at! We have come a long way with 6 years of conservation. Go to the GMAS website for more details. This is your opportunity to go on a walk with Jim McCormac, Lisa Rainsong, or take the beginner's walk with local expert Tim Leslie. Greg Miller will also be there to help you see a Bobolink in a spotting scope.
Bobolink numbers have been in great decline all across the country. It is not just Ohio that has seen changes in their numbers. For more information, the University of Connecticut has a Bobolink Project for the protection of Bobolinks.
It seems we have been leaders in conservation right here in Ashland County! Thanks to all of their friends in Greater Mohican Audubon and the Ashland Park District, central Ohio's Bobolinks have a place to call home.
