Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Streaky brown bird of open, treeless areas along the coastal plain and in adjacent hills. Range is mostly confined to Peru, but also reaches northern Chile. Thin bill helps separate it from finches; also note its yellow legs. No other pipit shares its coastal range. Spends most of the time on the ground, occasionally coming up to perch on a pole, fence, rock, etcetera. Song is a series of chips followed by a gravelly rasp.
