Monotonous Lark

Mirafra passerina

Description:

Also known as Southern white-tailed bush-lark, this is a grey-brown bird with lighter coloured belows. It sports a white throat-patch, and a shorter stocky bill.

Habitat:

Observed in Kunene region, north west of Namibia, in gardens of a camp where we were staying; these gardens leading to 'thornveld' - arid acacia tree-and-shrub landscape beyond. The region is still very dry (but still magnificent and rich in wildlife) at the moment, and grasses that accompany this habitat are rare following a three-year dry-spell.

Notes:

Curious - it seems that this was a lifer for PN... and it was definitely one for me.
