Information about the Western Meadowlark:
The Western Meadowlark is a medium-sized member of the Icteridae family. They grow to be about 8.5 inches long (22 centimeters.) These songbirds are native to western North America, from Canada down to Mexico. They are closely related to Eastern Meadowlarks, but have a few physical difference in the patterns on their feathers. They are generally found in grasslands, prairies, open pastures, meadows and fields. Their nests are made on the ground, which makes them vulnerable to cats and accidental encounters with mowers. For a long time the Eastern and Western Meadowlark for a long time were considered the same species, and when the Western bird was finally recognized as a separate species it was given the semi-ironic latin name of "neglecta." It is the state bird of Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon and Wyoming.
