This is essentially the long-billed lark of bushveld and savanna habitats. It is highly restricted in range, and most birders connect with the species around Polokwane in Limpopo Province. However, it also occurs in adjacent Botswana. The species looks similar to Rufous-naped Lark, but differs in its calls and behaviour.

This painting is available as a limited edition (set of 25) print, on high quality A3 paper. This image could also work in a series with the five long-billed lark species. Each image is signed by the artist, and numbered. The bird’s name is penciled at the bottom left of the plate. Please contact me if you are interested.
