I observed the WESTERN MEADOWLARK sitting on the electrical lines this morning on Olmstead Road, just north of Armitage Road at 9:15am. It sat for a moment- long enough for me to see spots, and as I approached in my car it took off and flew down into the field. I wasn't looking for this bird, just happened to be driving to work with a watchful eye! Happy to have gotten to see it.
