Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Streaky brown bird of fields, agricultural lands, and open shrubland. Gives segmented-sounding song, usually made of buzzy and whistled notes, from a perch or while airborne. Forages on the ground, where it can be hard to detect until very close; gives a loud chip as it flushes. Larger-billed and generally smaller than Eurasian and Oriental Skylarks, and averages more darkly streaked on the back. Brown Songlark is more gangly than Australian Bushlark, with weaker patterning and a pale brow.
