    Absolutely Beautiful!! I’m assuming from the comments that it is indeed a Meadowlark. I’ve heard them here in Coastal GA occasionally. But I definitely heard them while visiting my mom in Iowa. Thanks so much for sharing!!❤️❤️

  • Terrie Schrank

    Certainly a breath of fresh air the little guy learning to be a big guy!

  • A magical moment where we can dive into this minute video and live it fully. thank you very much

  • Un moment magique où l’on peut plonger dans cette minute vidéo et la vivre pleinement . Merci beaucoup

    For some reason, I thought you were filming these videos, Jim. That is certainly not our Meadowlark, commonly seen in south and southwestern MN. Ours has an entirely different song, which is long low note, higher long note, lower low note, lower high note followed by a much sweeter and long tweedle or twitter than that one had. Maybe this is a juvenile, who just fledged?

    Beautiful!! Reminds me of summers in Worthington, MN in the 60′s and listening to the meadowlarks while we ate supper.

  • Susan Colliton

    Hearing that meadow lark takes me back home. Thank you.

  • Stephen Albers

    Oh, the magic of their song. Thank you!

    Thank you for these precious moments of zen.

  • Je vis en France, à Paris et je ne connais pas le chant du meadowlark… Mais je l’imagine grâce à tous les commentaires des internautes amoureux et respectueux de la vie et de la nature et à ce que j’ai lu. Je vous remercie pour ce cadeau Jim Brandenburg. J’ai souvent lu des beaux reportages à votre sujet et j’ai tellement rêvé de marcher sur vos traces.

    No prettier song than a Meadow Lark and No prettier place than the Blue Mounds of Minnesota. Thanks Jim.

  • Saw my first one 30 years ago sitting on our arena fence here in Minnesota. Loved the sound of them. I haven’t seen one since.

  • Thank you so much!! I grew up in Luverne also, and I LOVED the beautiful, unmistakable song of the Meadowlark… I miss hearing their happy solos very much… it is one of many precious memories I have of growing up on the farm…❤️

    We live in Wisconsin now and I don’t think they live in this area…

    I was actually humming their song to myself the other day…
