I think I agree with karoo long billed Lark on the second bird, falls just in range, and I think this bird is showing just too much streaking on the breast to consider Spike Heeled Lark.

Hi guys

Please assist me in an audit of my life list. Since I hopelessly failed the lark challenge on the ID quiz, let me start there:
