The Eastern Meadowlark has a bright yellow breast adorned with a distinct broad black necklace (in the shape of a V), short tails and short rounded wings, white outer tail feathers, long starling-like bills, and brown-streaked backs. The female resembles the male, but is smaller. This bird is anywhere from 8 1/2-11" in length with a wingspread of 13 1/2-17". These birds are chunky, ground-dwelling birds and can be found in grasslands, pastures and prairies, but the population has been reduced due to urban areas, and reservoirs.
