Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A mid-sized pipit with pale brown plumage and a fine, dark bill. Strong streaking on the head, mantle, and back contrasts strongly with the pale edges of the feathers. The face appears clean and the eyebrow appears to start behind the eye. The wings show distinct white bars and there are fine streaks on the breast. Extremely similar to Paddyfield and Richard’s Pipits, but slightly bigger than the former and smaller than the latter, and paler and more contrasting overall than either of them. Inhabits grassy fields. The song is a series of short, raspy notes. The call is a sharp, explosive “shpeeu,” sometimes followed by single-syllabled “chup” notes.
