Kansas -- Western Meadowlark
#12 From a 5-state (in order), 3-day, 1600 mile road trip to CO, WY, NE, KS, and OK in June, 2015. This trip takes me from 8 to 13 states total. The morning photo near Bird City was poor ( again, owing to poor mid-day light and slow bird activity) but I got this in the p.m. just north of OK state line. The bird wasn't singing so I couldn't guarantee that it is western and not eastern. I doubt that the legislative discussion in 1937 included the distinction between the two birds.
