This weekend, I saw a bobolink--during the Penn's Cave wildlife tour. Nice bird. I didn't get to hear its little call or anything, as we were far away.
While on the tour, I also saw some (captive) wolves, deer, elk, bears, and bobcats. I don't like zoos at all, but this was slightly better than that, as most of the animals get to roam around a big enclosure of habitat land. However, the bears and the bobcats weren't so lucky--they were in cages with just these little private rooms they could retreat into. Didn't much like that. People always tell me that zoos are better than just leaving some animals out there to die at the hands of poachers, etc. But I know that if I were an animal, I sure wouldn't like people staring at me all day, and being in a cage to boot.
Still, it was nice to see a life bird.
