Sprague"s pipit (Anthus spragueii) conservation plan by Stephanie L. Jones Download PDF EPUB FB2

Audubon called this bird the "Missouri skylark," because he found it singing in the sky over the prairies along the upper Missouri River. Sprague's Pipit delivers its breathy flight-song while hovering high in the air, often for minutes at a time, over the northern Great Plains in summer.

In winter, it becomes an elusive skulker in the short grass of dry prairies. An unassuming bird with plain buffy plumage, Sprague’s Pipit possesses an amazing song flight, hovering on rapidly fluttering wings high above its territory, singing a lovely, downward-swirling song during bursts of gliding.
