Western Meadowlark

It was meadowlark week. I don't see them very often and I got some of my best views ever in three different places: Fish Springs NWR in west-central Utah, Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge on the northern end of the Great Salt Lake, and Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake.
This and the following were at Bear River MBR. 

This one was at Fish Springs. 

Meadowlarks do migrate, so I must have caught them during their migration. 


  1. Such a beautiful yellow. Is this the one that your dad said sings, “Salt Lake City is a pretty little place”?

  2. Yes it is, although Salt Lake City is not so little any more.
