Thekla Lark

January 22, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Thekla Larks are everywhere in the Moroccan landscape. Being fairly drab, I didn't pay them much heed unless there was a particularly close one, but they're nice birds to have a bit of a go at, and with a little patience I was able to get some good images. Or at least I think they're OK! 

Next time I'm out there I want to try a couple of other things, but I was particularly pleased with the cactus as for the most part they rarely left the ground, and in fact this was the only bird of any species that ever posed for me on one. These prickly pear cactuses are everywhere, people tend to use them as natural hedges or to protect their property. There is definitely some mileage in a series of images of birds on cactuses, but for now I've only got Thekla Lark! There are a few more images in the gallery.
