Meadowlarks at Sunset

Now that the time has changed, Bill often goes to the RC flying field after dinner. Tonight I joined him. It was still a little too windy to fly so we did a little bird watching.

The Eastern Meadowlark is one of my favorite birds. I love their bright yellow chests and their song is beautiful.

This one was singing his little heart out.

The Purple Martins have returned. OTOW sets out rows of houses to welcome them back.

This must be a male and female enjoying the sunset as I was.

It was almost dark - but I had time for one more picture - a Palm Warbler. Some of Bill's friends arrived just as the sun was setting and the wind died down for the evening. I headed home while he took his night plane out for a spin.
