After this weekend’s big snowstorm that hit us, there is nothing like finding a burst of yellow to brighten our day. Obviously you can tell from my photos that I located my first Eastern Meadowlarks for 2008 (CHECK). Because of the fresh snow on the ground, these two birds were found along the road in areas that had been dug up by the snowplow. They were very skittish and any time a vehicle would pass. . . . they would spook and fly away. I just parked my vehicle on the side of the road and let the meadowlarks come to me (which they did).
I also located my first for 2008 Red-bellied Woodpecker (CHECK) near the Quaker Lake area. I didn’t have any opportunities to photograph this bird but did get a quick look with my binoculars. It was nice finding these two great birds and who knows what could arrive next???
