Bird Family :Alaudidae - Larks
Bird Group :PASSERIFORMES
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :Usually seen in open scrubland and paddyfields just prior to the monsoon. This is the first bird of this species that I have seen actually in the tea garden amongst the bushes. Would have been impossible to spot if I hadn't startled it and forced it to give away its position.
