Wyoming -- Western Meadolark
#10 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. East of Cheyenne on Campstool Road. On this trip I realized that three-state junctures are really valuable if the birds can be found in that corner or edge of each of them. In this case, WY, NE, and KS abut each other with the same state bird. Easy enough for me except for the timing of the sightings. Of course I want a morning photo such as this one for best light, but there's only one state that can usually be "bagged" before bad birding sets in at late morning. At any rate, off I go to get NE.
Who ever thought up Sturnella neglecta, anyway?
