Prairie Songster

meadowlarkFriends, this songster is a Western Meadowlark and he is singing from a tree, usually you find them on the ground or on a fencepost, singing singing singing.  This time of year they are everywhere on the prairie lands of South Dakota and I always stop to try to capture an image of them. That yellow shirt with the black tie looks a bit formal but daring at the same time.  I think they are my favorite bird and the state bird of North Dakota. Too bad I couldn’t capture their pretty song. til Tomorrow MJ

  1. Great picture! I love the meadow lark. They sing the song of my childhood.

  2. Great picture! Beautiful little thing isn’t it? Pity you can’t capture something like a bird’s song in photography.
