Greater Short-toed Lark

The Greater Short-toed Lark (Calandrella brachydactyla) or sometimes just Short-toed Lark (but see below) is a small passerine bird. It breeds in southern Europe, northwest Africa, and across temperate Asia from Turkey and southern Russia to Mongolia. It is sometimes considered conspecific withCalandrella cinerea.[2][3] During migration they form large flocks that fly in synchrony and at other times they form loose flocks.
