Black-crowned sparrow-lark(female)

Eremopterix nigriceps


This is the third type of lark of the island, and one of the most remarkable because of the striking black head of the males. The females are very similar to the males of Bar tailed lark in colour and dimensions, but they can be distinguished by the shape of the beak.
