You hear notes of larks and pipits as they flit here and there among the heather.
Two belong to this family, and two come later with the Larks and Pipits.
This may be seen in daws, choughs, pipits, and many other species.
Pipits are more allied to the Wagtail family than with Larks.
There is no specimen of this or either of the other Pipits in the Museum.
The pipits and skylark, like the wagtails, have very long inner secondaries, but they can never be confused on this account.
On the morning of August 15, there was a dramatic increase in the number of pipits along the edge of the lake.
At Chandler Lake (Aug. 12, 1951) pipits fed along the sandy edge of the lake and among short sedges.
The only common ones that I can call to mind are the wagtails, the pipits, and the quail (Coturnix communis).
These were skylarks, woodlarks, pipits, and other small frequenters of the turnip-fields.
