Western Meadowlark - a First for Me ....

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Retief, Apr 14, 2007.

  1. Never saw these before, but one more "new" bird I found on my trips to Othello. And boy can these birds sing. Car windows rolled up, driving 60 mph with the radio on and I could still here them, amazing.

    Did you get my Good Side????

    The bird just would not turn around for me.

    Then, the following week, found this one very late in the day.

  3. Great looking birds Bill. We have the eastern version in the front field here all year round. I will have to get out and try my hand at putting a few on record.

  6. Okay, that does it! I'm gonna reach through this monitor and steal your photos! You and my hubby! When I first got the 300mm, we went up to Hagerman, I wanted a meadowlark - saw a bunch but WHO gets the photo?! MXMARK, that's who! Great photos BTW! And yep they're beautiful and I love to hear them sing!
