black-crowned sparrow lark(juvenile)

Eremopterix nigriceps


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 think this is a young specimen because it's the only one I've seen with a non perfect black crown(and I have seen many).
