Western Meadowlark

Sturnella neglecta

The Western Meadowlark is not a true lark, but more closely related to orioles and new world blackbirds. They range over most of North America west of the Mississippi River Valley. They are usually found in open grasslands, prairies, meadows and agricultural fields, where their song echo in clear warbling tones.
