A robin-sized bird, the Eastern Meadowlark has a light brown back and brilliant yellow breast with a big, black "V", found in grasslands and open savannas in eastern Canada south through the eastern United States. One of Audubon's Common Birds in Decline, the Easter Meadowlark's numbers have plummeted 73 percent since 1967.
The Eastern Meadowlark is not a lark (family Alaudidae) but rather a member of the family Icteridae, along with blackbirds and orioles.
