I was tickled to finally get this meadowlark sitting still long enough for a photograph to be taken.

These birds are quick, and around here are not all that trusting of people. They usually take off as soon as attention has been brought to which ever one I happen to see.

In 1927 Oregon governor I. L. Patterson (with the help of Oregon school children sponsored by the Oregon Audubon Society), declared a proclamation that the Western Meadowlark to be the state bird. Though the information I have says no legislative action was taken. This makes me wonder as to why the state would add that to the information to this page about this bird? MMMMMM
