The pictures for today were taken on April 4,2010.
Jake and I found this Western Meadowlark to be very cooperative.
Actually there were two birds,but to get both on one picture I had to zoom back too far.
Except for this first picture,each one is only slightly cropped,so you can see he was very close.
I took all of these pictures while sitting in the car.
After the first few shots one of the birds decided to walk away.
I believe these two birds were in a courting ritual,as they were both singing heartily
even while we were very close.
That bright yellow is so stunning.
I love to see these birds return in spring,and their song is so beautiful.
Finally,this is across the ditch.
The other bird was a short distance away,and they were taking turns singing.
These re perhaps the best Meadowlark pictures I have to date.
