Additional Information: 

As a part of a set of 40, this button features a Bobolink bird. The plumage of male Bobolinks is said to look like a skunk or a backwards tuxedo while females have brown plumage with streaks of white. Bobolinks eat insects, grains and seeds. In South America they are nicknamed “ricebirds” because they feast on rice fields and in Jamaica they are known as “butterbirds” because they are captured and consumed by locals.
