Down on the Farm - Case Study-Eastern Meadowlarks

Posted Monday 8th December 2008 at 15:58 by buckskin hawk
Have you ever wondered why a bird doesn't exist in what you think is prime habitate? One goal I would like to set for my blog is to conduct case studies. Mind you, I am very much an amatuer when it comes to science but I want to at least broaden my understanding of the local birds in my area.

Case Study 1 Eastern Meadowlarks:
Probem Statement
Last year I moved out to the country near Tulsa, Oklahoma. Across the street is 180 acres of pasture and what I would have thought to be prime habitat for meadowlarks. They are in general an abundant species in the pastures around this area. However I had not a single one all last year. I had to go several miles before seeing any of them. This year I have had as many as 14 in my front yard at one time. They seem to be everywhere. Why? What was the difference between this year and last?
