A Western Meadowlark sits on the fence post in the Nebraska Sandhills.
The Western Meadowlark is the size of a robin but chunkier with a shorter-tailed. They have yellow underparts with intricately patterned brown, black, and buff upperparts. This particular bird is an immature nonbreeding adult since it lacks black markings across its chest.
They like wide open spaces of native grasslands and agricultural fields for spring and summer breeding and winter foraging.
