(By Witmer Stone, Sc. D., Curator,
Academy of Natural Sciences of
The meadowlark or oldfield lark is
one of the most familiar birds of the
open country of the South. We see
them flying up from the fields where
ever we go and hear their call which
resembles the words, "Can't See Me."
The lark has had a bad name among
farmers in some parts of the country
and is charged with pulling up the
sprouting grain. For many years
the bird has been under observation
by the experts. of the U. S. Depart
ment of Agriculture and various
State Agricultural Experiment Sta
tions, and these charges have ,been
carefully and impartially investigated.
The result is that while the birds
do pull up some grain the immense
good that they do in destroying grass
hoppers an dother destructive insects
far more than offsets the damage. To
destroy these birds would be like cut
ting off one's nose to spite his face,
we would be worse off than we were
It is a very difficult task to get the
average person to consider the eco
nomic value of a bird impartially. We
see it destroy some fruit or seeds on
one or two days, or perhaps during
a few minutes only, and we condemn
it at once; while as a matter of fact
it may be engaged during the rest
of the day or the rest of the year in
hunting out cutworms or minute in
sects of all sorts which we cannot see
and we do not trouble ourselves to
find oue just what the bird is really
doin gat such time. This is where
the careful investigations of experts,
who study the birds at all times,
come in, and if we are wise we shall
give their findings the most careful
Let us see how the Meadow Lark's
case stands. They find that where
there are grass or pasture fields the
birds prefer them to cultivated ground
and spend their time picking up
beetles, grasshoppers and grass or
weed seeds. Where there are no
grass fields, and grain fields or other
cultivated grounds are handy, they
pull up some sprouting seers but only
just when they are sprouting-not
later, so that the period of damage
it at the most not more than two
Now on the other side of the ledger
we find that of 238 stomachs ex
amined at Washington collected from
all parts of the country, 73 per cent
of the contents was composed of in
sects-beetles, bugs, grasshoppers and
caterpillars; while 27 per cent was
vegetable matter more than half of
whic'h consisted of seeds of noxious
weeds and wild grasses. Let us look
again at the insect food of the
meadowlark and see just what kind
of bugs it eats. In the Southern
States one of the most favorite mor
sels is the Southern corn-root worm,
the beetle which produces these
worms lays its eggs in the ground
close to the roots of the corn and as
so'on as they hatch the little worms
bore right into the corn stalk, some
times 25 per cent or 50 per cent of
the crop is destroyed by these pests.
Many of the larks that we see in the
corn fields5 are dligging out these egg
laying beetles and saving our corn
instcead of dlestsoying it. Another
inseet which is a favorite article of
food wvith the lark is the cotton-boll
weevil. One quarter of all the lar
stomachs collectedl in the cotton dis
tricts containedl these insects some
individuals containing as miany as 27
individuals at the time they were
shot. One can easily calculate how
many weevils this would mean in the
course of a season. Graishoppers are
the ma in reliance of the lark and this
bird is one of the chief agencies in
the east, which keeps thesu dlestruct
ive insects ft om wiping out the entire
crops of grain, grass truck andl every
thing else as is often (lone in the
west. Careful estimates showv that a
single meadowlark will devour 1500
grasshoppers in a month and as we
know aplproxinmately how much grass
a grasshopper will eat peCr (lay it has
been further demonstrated that the
value of the grass or other fodder
saved by the larks in a townIship) of
thirty-six square miles, (luring the
grasshopp)er season amounts to nto
less than $24 Per month.
The meadlowlark is able to live per
fectly well on wintering insects which
it dligs out from among the grass
roots and upon the grass and - weedl
seedls which it finds scattered about
andl as it easily stands our winter
weather it is not compelledl to migrate
farther south andl hence is always
present to gobble up the first active
insects on their appearance in spring,
andl the first worms and weevils
which hatch from the eggs.
Frighten the larks away from your
gardens or corn patchbut dlon't kill
them. When you sum up their ac
tions for the whole year you will find
that they have saved hundreds of
bushels of grain from the attacks of
insects to one that they may have
themselves destroyed. It pays to
make long and patient studlies of
these problems and not come to too
