Name: Wilder
Location: N/A
Country: N/A
Date: N/A

We would like to reintroduce the Eastern Meadowlark bird to our area in southern Quebec. The meadowlark bird used to be a common sight in the eastern townships.

1. Is this possible?
2. What environmental conditions would be necessary?
3. Where could the birds come from?

Questions like this can only be answered locally. In the United States this would have to be done by or with the approval of state wildlife management agencies. Introductions, even of once native but now extirpated species, can cause unforeseen consequences, and certainly you will have to know local conditions.
