The yellow in the malar area indicates Western Meadowlark (Eastern/Lillian's is more white in this area).
Separating it into Eastern or Western is best done by hearing the song or calls or by range. Theoretically, if there is yellow immediately behind to the lower mandible (which this bird might have) it would be a Western.
