short-tailed_pipit

Short-tailed Pipit Anthus brachyura is one of the world’s rarest pipit species. In South Africa it is an uncommon localized breeding Red Data species listed as Vulnerable. However, because of its shy and secretive habits, it is perhaps overlooked to a great extent. Unlike many other pipit species they seldom venture out into the open, preferring to remain in their short grassy environment.
