The sage grass deserts of Oregon are an amazing place to listen to Western 
Meadowlarks and this is no exception. Often not seen, they bunker down low and 
sing out the morning. I happened to place my recorder very close to this area 
that this meadowlark would be singing and I got lucky. Surrounded by Lake Abert 
and cliff faces, you may also hear common raven and red winged blackbird along 
with various shorebirds calling.
