Eastern Meadowlark

Sturnella magna
 Eastern Meadowlarks walk on the ground, often concealed by grasses or crops. Males sing beautiful, flute like songs from exposed perches, particularly fence posts. Their flight is a distinctive sequence of rapid fluttering and short glides, usually low to the ground. In winter you may see flocks of meadowlarks hunting insects in fields.
