definitely Not a Savannah....
Always a joy to view at YYJ (the Victoria Airport) but was thrilled to see one at Martindale recently.
The snow has them traveling around, scrounging for food no doubt.
To say today's sighting was a treat is an understatement
Sky Lark SKLA (Alauda arvensis)
Central Saanich BC
more photo doc. here
in North America, only occurring near Victoria BC....
with an estimated population of less than 100 and the real unlikeliness of seeing one other than at Canora Rd at YYJ Victoria Airport...i suppose this in some way rates as a rare bird.....
