At first I wasn’t sure this was really a bird. Would have missed it if it was not being photographed by another birder.
Then it moved just a little, to turn it’s head to the side …
Oh yes, it was a bird!!
And what a beautiful bird. Ashy Crowned Sparrow Lark.
It was hot.
And then it confirmed it was not a stone, by flying 🙂
We saw it again.
Ashy Crowned Sparrow Lark doesn’t seem to be a shy bird.
Later, on the computer – once the image was cropped, it was easier to see the beak and the ashy crown and the silver-grey cheek.
