Oriental Skylark

Oriental Skylark
Oriental Skylark Alauda gulgula, Qinghai, China, August. (Craig Brelsford)
Oriental Skylark
Chongming Island, Shanghai, April. This bird, one of the pair whose nest I saw being constructed, shows a pale-buff trailing edge to the wing, not the noticeably brighter white trailing edge characteristic of Eurasian Skylark Alauda arvensis. The tail is shorter than is typically the case in Eurasian. (Craig Brelsford)
Oriental Skylark
Lake Poyang, Jiangxi, China, November. (Craig Brelsford)
