Eastern Meadowlark

While it was a failed attempt to find a particular bird I was fortunate enough to have photographed an Eastern Meadowlark.

Such a vibrant yellow chest with their distinguished black v-shaped mark. You may be able to view a couple of the Eastern Meadowlarks perched on fence posts overlooking open fields. Upon my observation, it seems they like to perch on cattle dung mounds as well.

Click on any of the photos to view the video. Unfortunately, it was a very windy day so there is no sound. I will upload a new video with sound when I can!
