Eastern Meadowlark

ABA 1

(Sturnella magna))

Eastern Meadowlark is very similar in appearance to Western Meadowlark, but differs by range and entirely different song. Western Meadowlark generally lacks the Eastern’s white malar stripe that separates the yellow throat from the brown face. The southwestern “Lilian’s” race of Eastern Meadowlark is paler, has a different song, and is a candidate for future splitting into a separate species.
