Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, slim, sandy-colored pipit with a long and broad eyebrow, a prominent dark area in front of the eye, sparsely streaked back and breast, and a long and pointed pinkish bill. Juveniles are more spotted and may recall other large pipits in wintering areas. Rather distinctive in its wagtail-like stance and foraging behavior. Usually found feeding on the ground in open habitats, sand dunes, dry grasslands, and gravel pits. Call is a harsh "tschlip".
