|Eurasian Skylark (Alauda arvensis) Larks (Alaudidae)|
|Sanglærke Alondra Común|
2021-05-24 Kalvebod Fælled, Amager, Denmark
The flat-crowned individual was on site taken for a Wood Lark, but photos reveal it as what must be a worn Eurasian Skylark. Comparing it with the more normally looking skylark in picture 1 and 4, the mistake should be understandable. Furthermore, the bird looked much smaller as it moved about with a hunch-backed attitude.
A Wood Lark would show shorter tail and the typical black and white pattern at the wing bend; also the bill should be more slender.
