Well camouflaged! Looked to be foraging amongst the driftwood. Took off shortly after and almost hovered above the nearby sandhills while singing before heading inland.

Larks are passerine birds of the family Alaudidae. All species occur in the Old World, and in northern and eastern Australia. Only one, the Horned Lark, is native to North America. Habitats vary widely, but many species live in dry regions.
