Certhilauda semitorquata (Endemic)
Endemic to South Africa and Lesotho, this large lark with its lengthy bill is a common resident in grassland, especially on rocky hill slopes. It is the smallest of the long-billed larks and has the shortest bill and least streaking of its five family members.
This species can be best located by its far-reaching, descending whistle. An extremely reliable spot to find them is Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve, a mere 45 minutes from Johannesburg.
