Western Meadowlark

You might ask, why has a bird illustration popped up in the middle of my holiday art making? My youngest brother lives in Montana, and as I was making my family Christmas cards, I thought he should get something a little different. So, I painted him the Montana state bird….the Western Meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta). The Meadowlark also hails as state bird for Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon and Wyoming.

    You are very talented. I just did a post on the 50 State Birds and was surprised to see just how many states have the Meadowlark as their state bird. The Northern Cardinal was another popular one. 🙋🐦
