The Western Meadowlark has one of the most pleasant and melodic songs of any bird. Meadowlarks are a member of the blackbird family. They are one of the most abundant and widespread birds in the western US. They eat insects, grubs, worms, and seeds.
This Western Meadowlark seems to be watching the sun set.
I'm not sure, but this one appears to be an Eastern Meadowlark. Let me know if I'm wrong.
This blog is intended to show the wide variety of birds we have coming, going, and residing in the Texas Panhandle. I consider it a challenge to personally photograph as many species and varieties of birds in the panhandle as I can as I go about my life. I will try to make entries as accurate as possible. I am a photographer, not a bird expert. Please feel free to correct me if any information I put here is in error. This is a work in progress. Enjoy our birds as I enjoy photographing them.
