Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A fairly average-looking but variable lark. The overall coloration ranges from bright rufous in the northeast to dull rufous in most of the range to brown in some areas, but there is always a distinct pale eyebrow, some streaking on the breast, and rufous in the wings that is revealed in flight. Found in dry savanna and woodland habitat, usually on sandy soil. Similar to several other lark species, but more rufous than most, and lacks bright white edges to the tail. Gillett’s Lark is also quite rufous, but Foxy Lark lacks its rufous crown and cheek patch. Foxy Lark also has a longer and slimmer bill than Singing Bushlark. The song is a quick jumble of high-pitched notes, usually given from the top of a bush, but sometimes in flight.
