The Western Meadowlark, Sturnella neglecta, is a loud, brightly-colored songbird that sings many varied songs. This colorful member of the blackbird family flashes a vibrant yellow breast crossed by a distinctive, black, V-shaped band. It lives in fields, pastures, open grasslands, and prairies in western and central USA, southern Canada, annd northern Mexico, ranging from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Ocean. This songbird is the state bird of Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, and Wyoming.

I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor
