Hi guys, another bit of help please,
looked through the books but still can't decide what this is, I am thinking some sort of Lark, maybe Sabota?
Seen in Kruger this last March.

Is this a Dusky Lark?
Saw him near Mopani (KNP) mid April. The photo quality is not that great, had to zoom in quite a distance.
As far as I can find out Dusky Larks are summer visitors so, is it not a bit late in the year to see this little guy?
If not please help me identify.

Looks like Dusky Lark to me. My book says they are present December to May, so is within the time. We saw them in March in the Letaba area too - pretty little bird.

Hi, can someone please help me with the ID of this bird seen in Kruger in Feb this year.
I am guessing Dusky Lark but not sure?

It looks to me like a dusky lark, SC, but it would help to know where and when you saw it? :wink:
