I've never seen a meadowlark, even when I was living on the east coast. And aren't cardinals just spectacular? The first time I heard them calling, I was hooked. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment on my "grid" mosaic.

Love the shot - I'm on a quest to photograph more of the birds in my area. I don't believe I've seen one of these.

A flower with an amazing song - love the haiku.

Bryan Borland said...

The best haiku - you read them and you don't realize it's a haiku.

Wonderful - both the photo and verse. :)

Your meadow lark has marking similar to our wattle bird! Great shot!
