Сергей Л. Волков: Имя не полностью отразилось. Предыдущий комментарий мой.


Ирина Романовская: Этот жаворонок летал со стайкой рогатых жаворонков. Возможно, солончаковый?


Philippe Campeau: Ha ha! This is very funny, we were so convinced it was a short-toed that I did not even look at the photo. It is indeed a pipit. Legs very black and ''moustache'' not visible (water), but very streaked on the flanks (buff-bellied)... I will leave unidentified. [....]


no any comments:


Philippe Campeau: Грудь бурая и хвость не рыжая, а белая... Не думаю, что это курганник. Но крыля довольно длинные, слишком много для канюка?
