The Malabar lark, or Malabar crested lark is a sedentary breeding bird in western India.

This is a common bird of open country, cultivation and scrub, often at some altitude. It nests on the ground, laying two or three eggs. Its food is seeds and insects, the latter especially in the breeding season.

This is a smallish lark, slightly smaller than the skylark. It has a long spiky erectile crest. It is greyer than the skylark, and lacks the white wing and tail edges of that species,.. more
