Western Meadowlark in Black Hills

The buoyant, flutelike melody of the Western Meadowlark ringing out across a field is beautiful. Meadowlarks are often more easily heard than seen, unless you spot a male singing from a fence post. This colorful member of the blackbird family flashes a vibrant yellow breast crossed by a distinctive, black, V-shaped band. Meadowlarks are stout ground feeders in grasslands, meadows, pastures, and along marsh edges throughout the West and Midwest, where flocks strut and feed on seeds and insects.
