Western Meadowlark

While out on our weekly scout for LASHP’s dog of the week we were lucky to catch a glimpse of an unusually stationary Western Meadowlark. We’ve seen quite a few Meadowlarks in the park recently but not been able to get very satisfying photos. Here, at least we are able to see the striped detail on the feathers, the yellow coloring, and long, pointed bill. So strange that this one did not immediately fly as we approached. Another nester, perhaps?
