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. One of the best-known birds of the prairie farmlands.

    This is SO lovely, Larry! We used to have Eastern Meadowlarks galore around here, but in recent years their numbers have decreased, & Red-Winged Blackbirds have taken over their niche, it seems. A bird perched on a road sign in the country would almost certainly be a meadowlark in days gone by… now it’ll be a red-wing. Last summer, I was driving along a rural road with the windows wide open, & I heard that song. I almost cried! I screeched to a halt, & I saw him flying away. Better than nothing, I guess. Great shot, this.
