To better understand the effects of grazing on native plants and grassland bird habitat, a team of scientists led by James Bartolome, professor in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at UC Berkeley, studied three bird species in central California -- Western meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta), Horned lark (Eremophila alpestris), and Grasshopper sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum).

In 1989 nest densities among CRP cover types were different for grasshopper sparrows (Ammodramus savannarum), (F = 3.41, df = 9, P = 0.079), and western meadowlarks (Sturnella neglecta) (F = 3.95, df = 9, P = 0.058) (Table 1).
Three species [dickcissel (F1,260 = 5.13, P = 0.024), grasshopper sparrow (F1.260 = 8.55, P = 0.004) and western meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta) (F1,260 = 5.29, P = 0.022)], showed significant treatment X year interactions.
Unpublished data collected by Institute for Wildlife Studies suggest a high percentage of mammalian prey in their diet including roof rat (Rattus rattus), North American deermouse (Peromyscus maniculatus), and house mouse (Mus musculus), as well as a small portion of lizards (Uta) and birds, primarily western meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta) and European starling (Sturnus vulgaris).
In contrast, spatial measures of habitat richness and texture in the landscape were significant only at large spatial scales, Abundance of Horned Larks, Western Meadowlarks (Sturnella neglecta), and Brewer's Sparrows, but not Sage Thrashers (Oreoscoptes montanus) or Sage Sparrows, was positively correlated with changes toward stable habitats.

Less common grassland species, from most to least common, were sedge wren (Cistothorus platensis), upland sandpiper (Bartramia longicauda), dickcissel (Spiza americana), horned lark (Eremophila alpestris), vesper sparrow (Pooecetes gramineus) and western meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta).
Birds included western meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta) and horned lark (Eremophilia alpestris).
A western meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta) was found alive but in very poor condition and was euthanized; necropsy did not reveal the original cause of distress.
Birds that typically breed in grasslands (e.g., lark bunting, Calamospiza melanocorys, western meadowlark, Sturnella neglecta) were only considered to have nested at a site if we found a nest between rows of trees within a shelterbelt.
Western meadowlark (Sturnella neglecta) abundance was negatively correlated with vertical vegetation cover but positively correlated with vertical patchiness (Table 3).
