Medium-sized lark of arid zones. Pale sandy overall with a strong yellowish-based bill and faint breast streaking. Differs from the similar Bar-tailed Lark by larger bill and broader diffuse dark tail band. Call is a soft “chup.” Song is a repeated phrase of flutey notes. Walks and runs on the ground, searching for small arthropods and plant material. Found in various desert habitats including sandy plains and rocky slopes.
