NOTES: (Species Sound: Constant. Behav. Context: Mating invitation. General Climate: Arid. Cov. Density: Sparse.) At least 4 individuals on tape but the field was full of Stark's Larks. The desert was flowering green with lots of yellow flowers. Birds were calling on the ground and doing a flight dislay. they hang their feet down while flying. Sandy desert - fewer rocks than other areas. Ian Sinclair.
ML: Subject changed from Spizocorys sclateri to S. starki as per the recordist's voice announcement. -Matt Medler, 4 June 2015.
