Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, robust, almost thrushlike pipit given the big bill, long and pale eyebrow, and long tail. If perched off the ground the very large hind claws and long legs are obvious. Flight is strong, heavy, and bounding. Utters "pshee" call when flushed. Found in open grasslands, stubble fields, farmland, dunes, and salt marshes. Separation from other large pipits can be difficult; pay attention to call and wing pattern.
