Western Meadowlark, Montana
#21 A few were inspecting nearby water north of Broadus, Montana. It was quite a melodious bunch. There was a high concentration of these birds on the prairies in the third week of October. By the 4th week there seemed to be very few. In the road trip to Canada for goose hunting, I drove an extra 800 miles (because I forgot to use my planned route of only 400 extra miles) and got three state birds, MT, SD, and ND.
