Pink-billed Lark

Spizocorys conirostris (near-endemic)

This small, compact lark is one of my favourites. Its contrasting facial markings, rufous belly and short, conical bill make it one of the prettier and easier to identify lark species.

Devon, during summer (& early winter), is an excellent area to see this near-endemic species. They can often be seen foraging along the road verges, especially along the Klippan Link and Rietkuil roads (If you are interested in visiting the area, consider buying a copy of “The Chamberlain Guide to Birding Gauteng” by Etienne Marais and Faansie Peacock. It has a good map of the area and these specific roads, as well as the birds you can find on them, are well described)
