Very nice, Dave. There's nothing like a singing western meadowlark in spring. Well done.

Thanks Al and Rog! We have lots of them here but it's hard to get a good shot. Ugh, grackles. My 3 feeders in the back yard made it 24 hrs before being emptied by them. There was 16 or18 of them pillaging!

Thanks Terry, around here it's sure sound of spring. They love the high line wires so it's hard to get a shot on something else.
