Western Meadowlark

Heard call note, saw it fly with very little white in tail and photos. Stan Hamilton and others had seen the bird earlier in the day so we were on the lookout for a lighter Meadowlark. They had not heard it vocalize at all but did see its flight . They also saw very little white and straight flight vs a more undulating flight that we observed by the Eastern Meadowlarks. This bird was much lighter, less white in tail and flew differently than the Eastern Meadowlarks present.
