Horned Lark

Horned Larks are very common in Utah, but they’re really hard to get good pictures of in the winter, as evidenced by this post.  I’ve had been luck in the summer, though.  I saw them in Arizona (of course) in early April.

And at Antelope Island on July 4th.  They just love perches in open fields.

In this picture you can see the little tufts of feathers on their heads that gave rise to the name Horned Lark.

The lark was hanging out in a field near a buffalo.

The poor guy must have been so hot.  That is a lot of fat and fur to have in July.
