Western Meadowlark, Badlands, South Dakota

During our day trips by car we always scan the surrounding areas for birds while driving. This wasn’t really necessary for the Western Meadowlark in Badlands National Park. We found meadowlarks at many places and one of them was Sage Creek Campground, where we had pitched our tent for several nights. Their song woke us up in the morning and it was fun seeing them foraging for food between the short vegetation.
