Meadowlark

Western Meadowlark is generally found in drier habitats with shorter grass than the Eastern. it is more widspread, nesting well into the Canadian prairies, with vagrants recorded as far north as Alaska and Siberia. meadowlarks are best distinguished by the males call. VOICE Song a variable set of whistled phrases; usually begins with 1 or 2 sweet, clear notes and ends with more complex, contorted, slurred whistles ( like a slide whistle). Call is a flat tuk, never given by the Eastern

IDENTIFICATION Bill usually appears longer, more decurved than the Eastern. Like the Eastern but has paler flanks with shorter streaks, paler head and upperparts, less contrast in head pattern.


Eastern Meadowlark inhabits open areas such as meadows, prairies, farm fields, salt marshes, and grasslands. It is most often seen singing from fencepost or searching for insects and seeds on the ground.

VOICE Song is a variable low, whistled tiooooo,tiierrrrrr, second phrase lower, descending and meloncholy. Call is a short, buzzy dzzzit_, quite different from the Western Meadowlark. SONGS AND CALLSMeadowlark.aspx

IDENTIFICATION Like Western but more richly rufous-tinged above (except Lilian’s). Strong contrast in head pattern. Yellow throat seperated from streaked auriculars by white malar.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
