  1. You are so fortunate that they are nesting in your area – what incredible photos!! Love the Meadowlark, too 😉 I just saw my first Eastern Meadowlark last week at a preserve in Central FLA

      We are fortunate! This rookery is only 15 minutes from our house. We’ve lived here 3 years and just found out about it. Meadowlarks are extra pretty. I know someone who has lived in Florida for decades and has never seen one. Lucky you!

  2. That “young” being fed looks as big as his Mom. Slave driver.
