As we searched for the GPC we say a Western Meadowlark land on a fence post! Great photo opportunity!

We decided to find a gas station and then head back to look for GPC again. We decided to take a drive through Kelley Slough NWR but didn't see anything different; Tundra Swans, Mallards, Northern Pintails, Canada Geese, Ring-billed Gulls, American Coot, Green-winged Teal, and Blue-winged Teals. So we headed back to the GPCMA but still no luck. So we decided to call it quits for the day and before heading back and since it was on the way we would stop at the gas station again to see if she had went back to laying on her eggs, but sadly she wasn't and I was worried that she may have abandoned her eggs because we got to close. Any ideas? But she was about 15-20 feet away when we came back and making quiet a bit of noise too. Really hope we didn't scare her off.
Here are a few pictures from Kelley Slough NWR.
