Eastern Meadowlark (Lilian's)

Unidentified meadowlark at the time. By Apr 30, leading 4-2 over WEME based on expert commentary. Very pale. White rects may eliminate WEME? Lightly marked undertail coverts poor for WEME.... Agreed by all that it looks "worse" for "Eastern" EAME than the other two - tertial/tail pattern too lightly marked, overall too pale, lack of warm brown markings, undertail coverts lightly marked... Hopefully new field marks arise in future years. ID based on current/available knowledge. Will test it against any new material going forwards. Always looking for comments. Perhaps a Lilians/WEME label is needed in ebird.
