Western Meadowlark

Sturnella neglecta

Description:

Meadowlarks are often more easily heard than seen, unless you spot a male singing from a fence post. This colorful member of the blackbird family flashes a vibrant yellow breast crossed by a distinctive, black, V-shaped band.

Habitat:

farmland near open fields

Notes:

We saw (and heard) lots of these little guys while hunting for raptors.

Thank you all for the kind words! We did see many great raptors that day, but sometimes it's the little guys that leave the biggest mark! Thanks again!

I like the way you saw him singing, rather then with his mouth shut. Did you spot any raptors?
