This is an older image that I should out on Konza Prairie on a walk one evening. This is a male Dickcissel and they are common to our area of Kansas. They look similar to the Western Meadowlark but they have a smaller beak and different tails. You can tell it is a male by the small V on it's chest. Their name comes from the sound of their song which they are often seen singing while sitting out on the prairie like this.
