Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources






The rufous naped lark has rufous wings and crest and a short tail. The ssp. nigrescens in southwestern Tanzania is darker than the nominate race and the breast streaking extends onto the flanks (both 2nd row photos, Kitulo NP, courtesy of Paul Oliver). The bird with outstretched wings was at Ndutu (5-15), courtesy of Siegfried Woldhek. The left lower photo was taken on West Kilimanjaro (4-08), courtesy of Frank Snykers: click it to see 18 enlargements including another ssp. nigrescens. The other photos were taken at Nanja Dam, Serengeti NP, Simba Farm and Ngorongoro Crater.
