I've been checking the shrub-steppe areas along Vantage Hwy every day for the past couple of weeks. Friday morning, just after the cold spell lifted I noted Meadowlarks in force singing for the first time. Checking these areas periodically throughout the winter Medowlarks were scarce to nonexistant, so I would say these birds clearly represented migrants coming into breed.

Western Meadowlark - many in Columbia Basin in song, presumably migrants
that have arrived (they seem very scarce in winter). One at north end of
Blue Lake in the shrubbery was surely a migrant, as this isn't breeding
