Black-crowned sparrow lark(male)

Eremopterix nigriceps

Description:

This is the third type of lark of the island, and one of the most remarkable because of the striking black head. They are very small and shy, fleeing at great distance. I managed to come close to one by accident because of a bush standing between us that had precluded to us the sight of each other.

Habitat:

rocky desert
