I used to hear my parents peak of them. First picture I have seen in many years and a fine bird. What a neat catch Rick. I don't know if there are many images of this one on the web....You sure do get around...

Great work. I've only seen this bird once, but it didn't allow me to approach at all. All I managed was an 'id' shot just to see what I've photographed. It looks like you had more luck here. Great capture. TFS

Rick, this is an incredibly beautiful bird with such colorful feathers and plumage.
The frontal exposure has turned into a lovely portrait. I like how the perch and the bird are isolated from the neutral BG.
Well done and TFS.

I have heard of meadowlarks all my life but have never seen or heard one. A beautiful bird with unusual color and pattern combinations. I love the dark bib on the yellow. His face is adorable. Good details - If I ever see one I will know who he is.

what a beautiful little bird!
Its colours are enhanced by the dull surroundings and even exposure.
Pin-point focusing and a great DOF.
Sharp with loads of detail.
A really nice shot!!

Where was I missing this beautiful picture...I think it is stunning and the yellow pops out the frame like these old black and white movies they painted. What a nice bird, Rick, and you show it to us with all your skills and heart, thank you.
pts tomorrow... oh, out of them once more!
