Woodlark

Lullula arborea

Description:

This is a 13.5- to 15-cm-long bird, slightly smaller than the skylark being roughly 20% shorter. The woodlark is mainly brown above and pale below, but with distinctive white superciliar meeting on the nape. It has a crest which is quite small and at most times inconspicuous. In flight it shows a short tail and short broad wings. The tail is tipped with white, but unlike the skylark, the tail sides and the rear edge of the wings are not edged with white. (Wikipedia)

Habitat:

Spotted in a meadow at moun Chortiatis (Thessaloniki, Greece).

Notes:

Greek common name: Δεντροσταρήθρα.
