In my last posting I mentioned a couple of bird species that I've been finding hard to photograph this fall - Northern Harrier and House Wren. In fact, a third species has been giving me trouble, too - Eastern Meadowlarks.
Every time I venture out to the Katy Prairie I see Eastern Meadowlarks. Sometimes just a handful, sometimes scores. Many of them would be perched in bushes or on fence lines right by the road. However, until a week or so ago every Meadowlark I spotted would disappear as soon as I stopped the car to try for a photo.
Then, at Warren Ranch Lake a Meadowlark on the ground let me take several more fairly close-up photos.
