Lives, Habitats & Pictures of the Meadowlarks

Enter Bird's Name in Search Box:


There are two species of meadowlarks found in North America: the Eastern Meadowlark and the Western Meadowlark. Both types are seen throughout their ranges in the USA and through all of the southern regions of Canada. These two types of meadowlarks overlap each others boundaries through the central regions of the continent.

Meadowlarks are the welcoming hosts of pastures and meadows. Their sweet melodies can be heard from a distance. The meadowlark can usually be seen perched on a wooden fence or up on a hydro line, where it can see over its territory. These hardy birds are one of the few who arrive on their northern nesting grounds early in the spring and are one of the last birds to leave in the fall.
