Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

An unusual lark with a slim bill and pinkish-brown markings on the face and underparts. Unlike many larks, shows no white in the outer tail or rufous in the wing in flight. Found in dry savanna. More likely to be confused with a pipit than other larks, but separated by the pinkish plumage. The song is usually given from the top of a bush, and often repeated: a simple, tinkling series of high notes that accelerates and drops in pitch.
