Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large pipit with buffy outer tail feathers and a plain or very diffusely streaked back. Found in open areas with very short grass and also sometimes in agricultural fields. Bobs its tail more frequently and vigorously than other pipits. Call is a quiet chirp, and the song is an unobtrusive series of similar notes. Extremely similar to Plain-backed Pipit but separated by its pink rather than yellowish base to the bill.
