Mile High Meadowlark

16 05 2010

I was down near Denver this past week and work had me so busy, I thought I’d NEVER get out to shoot. Saturday morning gave me a brief opportunity and I wasn’t disappointed. I got my first meadowlark:

Such a lovely song!

Glorious shot, and a glorious song if it is anything like our sky larks, the sound of summer.

Well I can’t compare, but yes it really made me feel like the winter cold had been shaken off when he sang. Thank you for your comment.

Is it like Hummingbird?

No, it is a Meadowlark. Much larger than a hummingbird. About the size of a robin.

Did you get to touch the bird? They must be furry~

They are wild – I can’t get THAT close 🙂 I got about 6m from this one before he flew off.

At least you got the picture, if I got a robin’s picture, I would be watching it all day!
And I never seen a robin.

You need to be very quiet and sit quite still near an area where the birds come. It’s hard when you’re younger but gets easier as you age 🙂

Our neighbours have a Bird Feeder, my mom said we can make one.

That’s great to hear. Do you have a balcony that it can sit at or will it hang from a tree? Do you see many birds at your neighbour’s feeder?

Yeah, my mom said in the early morning, she saw lots of birds sitting (or standing) on the bird feeder. Our bird feeder is hanged. Yeah! I saw lots of birds standing on their bird feeder.
