Western Meadowlark


(Sturnella neglecta)

Western Meadowlark is the state bird of Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, and Wyoming. It is very similar in appearance to Eastern Meadowlark, but differs by range and entirely different song. Western lacks the Eastern’s white malar stripe that separates the yellow throat from the brown face.
