Was fortunate enough to get some cooperative Meadowlarks back in early December. They are one of my favorite birds, so was very excited! These are a few of my favorites, hope you all enjoy!

I love these guys too- unfortunately here in S. Fl. they have become rather scarce. When I hear one I am instantly transported to my childhood wanderings in unincorporated Broward Co.

Great shots, I am so jealous of them cooperating. They are one of my favorites and I feel the same as CaptBob.

Great shots and the last one is classic. I love them too, especially the western species for it's song. But like a lot of prairie birds, they are not doing well because of us.

You managed to squeeze in a couple of classics Jason with the reed perch and the fencepost. Those 2 are excellent and just where I expect to see a Meadowlark. I'll admit to being taken aback a little bit that you actually found one on the ground too! :) Nice job.

Thanks Cam! I was thrilled to get them on the ground also, but still not a perfect image I picture in my mind. I would love to find one on the ground on a cold morning, where you could see its breath when it was singing!

What a very nice set you have here. I really like the one in the tall grass, very unique!
