Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A nondescript buffy-brown bird found in high elevation grasslands and farmland from western Venezuela to Bolivia. Occurs from around 2,500 to 4,500 m. Upperparts have prominent dark streaking, but underparts are mostly clean buffy with only limited streaking on the upper breast and neck sides. Legs and bill are pinkish. Usually seen singly, walking on the ground or occasionally perched on a small shrub or fencepost. The only pipit in much of its range (north of central Peru); southward, note cleaner underparts (especially flanks) than possible confusion species like Hellmayr’s Pipit.
