Eastern Meadowlark

Eastern Meadowlarks are migratory birds that spend their summers in northern grasslands such as the Fort Edward area, but a few remain year round. They eat seeds and bugs ... lots and lots of bugs, some of which they dig for. I got these 2 shots in early spring during a sleet storm, please excuse the slightly fuzzy grainy pictures..   high-res

These little birdies have the bright yellow breast, marked with that black V shape.   high-res

June 2017 - Met this Eastern Meadowlark sitting on a fencepost singing his heart out.   high-res

Then he turned to show me his front, with that black V-mark, and sang some more. He puffs out his chest and lets loose.   high-res

And then this Eastern Meadowlark turned for his right profile shot, he's quite a poser. And then went back to singing.   high-res

The Eastern Meadowlark, a very noisy little critter!
