US - 994402 : Western Meadowlark from Kansas

A Postcrosser Bird


WESTERN MEADOWLARK, Sturnella neglecta (Sedgwick County). The western meadowlark is our Kansas state bird. Perched on a fence post, the bird is easily seen with its bright yellow breast. Its camouflaged back however, will conceal the bird while it sits on its nest hidden in tall grass. The western meadowlark feeds on a variety of spider's and seeds.
