Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Distinctive tan bird with a thin curved bill. Forages on the ground in rocky high-elevation grasslands and pastures, especially near water and in damp areas. Usually keeps an upright posture and looks heavy-chested with a short tail. The males sing in flight displays, giving a song that is a long series of “pip” notes. Its call is a nasal laughing “heew,” recalling a flycatcher or even a small gull.
