Eastern Meadowlark

The Eastern Meadowlark’s flutelike song can be heard during the summer months over grasslands throughout the state. As this photo from Leota, Indiana birder and photographer Brian Lowry shows, they can also be found during the winter. These hardy medium-sized songbirds have a distinct flight pattern of combined fluttering wing beats and gliding. Males perch to sing on fence posts and utility lines across Indiana farm lands.
