Western Meadowlark - Pritchard, BC
The bench above the upper south Thompson River has some great grassland birds. The fence posts were alive with yellow birds with black "V's." These blackbird family members are the western version of the songsters of the prairies. It is very easy to tell the species because of location here, but if you are in the western/eastern overlap, it is going to be very hard to tell at a distance but if you are really observant the additional yellow on the throat will give some indication.
