Horned Lark/Shorelark (Eremophila alpestris) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1177)
Canada (Ontario) Ingleside - As a followup to my January post of the northern subspecies of Horned Lark that overwinters here, this is the Prairie subspecies that has been migrating through for the last couple of weeks. Many of us consider this our first spring bird because it usually is. Note the white rather than yellow above the eye.

That's one thing about Horned Larks. They often tend to look very plump, which may in this case be because they are keeping warm by trapping air in their feathers. It will be -23C tonight. Welcome to spring
