Cape Long-billed Lark, Cape Lark, Certhilauda curvirostris curvirostris, South African Endemic,

This species has a very limited range in western South Africa. We were lucky enough to find this bird hunting for food in the heavy rain. This large species is long-bodied, has distinct breast and flank streaking as well as a long, down-curved bill. We photographed this bird in heavy rain a few kms inland from St Helena Bay near Velddrif in the Western Cape.
