I think that your Tzende, Shing and 1st CB birds are all Sabota larks.

Cheers

Need help with this one taken at Augrabies Falls Nat. Park this past August.

Its that massive bill that's throwing me--not right for a sparrow, not right for a lark (and body shape wrong for a lark too..) Bill seems too thick for a chat also... Have looked through two field guides page by page and not found it! Help!

I'm sure its something quite common and ordinary that I am not considering :?

Hi BB,

Have a look at the Western form of Sabota Lark, sometimes called Bradfield's Lark.

Cheers,

Barcud, I do believe that's it! What threw me was not only the thick bill but also the Sabota's I've seen (and I have other photos of Sabota's) have much lighter colored and pointier bills. I was starting to think this was some sort of mutant :wink:

Thanks a million!

I think most likely Sabota Lark, but the back is not boldly mark which worries me, otherwise Stark's Lark is a second option. Good photo.
