A Horned Lark is the only native lark that nests in North America. They have striking face pattern with two small black “horns” that are not always noticeable. The females look similar, but lack the “horns”. This one looks like and Interior West subspecies, as it has white over the eye, rather than yellow. Horned Larks are ground birds and can be found in open areas with sparse vegetation, such as prairies, short grass, or dirt fields. They feed on mostly insects and in winter will feed on insects, as well. HORNED LARK-1
