POWERED BY MERLIN

A small lark with a short, conical bill. It appears long and horizontal, and has strong streaks on the upperparts. Very similar to Greater Short-toed Lark, but Sykes’s is slightly larger, is warmer brown with a rust-colored tinge on the breast and underparts, and has bolder streaking. It usually inhabits open, dry grassy habitats. Calls are similar to those of Greater Short-toed Lark, but said to be slightly harsher and more nasal.
