Rufous-naped Larks are synonymous with summer. The simple tsee-tseeooo whistles of males, delivered from some 1m-high perch such as a fence post, termite mound or boulder, is a familiar sound wherever one goes in grassland or open savanna. The males utter this song with their flamboyant red nape feathers raised high, and often perform little jumps or short flutters in between song bouts.
