Mystery bird


Phila Rogers
 

Found walking around on one of our courtyards here at Samarkand )next to Oak Park.  It appeared to be unable to fly.  Except for the strongly-marked head, it resembles a mocking bird.  I suspect it may be an exotic which escaped its cage.  Any thoughts?  Phila Rogers

Hello:

I'm afraid the photo didn't attach so here goes again.  Except for the strong-marked black and white head, it certainly looks like a meadowlark.  The injured bird is at the brid rescue place.  Phila

I am no expert, but it looks like a Meadowlark to me.

Well, I am sure by now someone has responded that this is a Western
Meadowlark.

Could this be an Eastern Meadowlark...? The head is quite boldly patterned, and the rectrices appear to have solid black centers...
