This North American breeder is an extraordinary migrant, traveling to south of the equator each autumn and making a round-trip of approximately 20,000 kilometers. One male known to be at least 10 years old presumably made this trip annually, a total distance equal to traveling 5 times around the earth at the equator! Results from birds tagged with geolocators show that Bobolinks strain our traditional notion of a stationary non-breeding range, as birds make an extended stopover in Venezuela before proceeding south to Bolivia, Paraguay, and Argentina.
