The Horned Lark despite its diminutive size is a winter survivor in Nova Scotia. It moves in flocks and it is easily startled and put to wing. I've had difficulty photographing this bird just for that reason. It works the open ground around corn fields.
I've enjoyed listening to this wonderful singer on its nesting territory in Newfoundland. Hundreds will sing simultaneously. Yes it does have horns. The horns are small but still count.
