Ringing Crested Lark - Jubail

The Crested Lark Galerida cristata is a very common breeding resident in all areas of Saudi Arabia from sea level to 3000 metres. In the Eastern Province it is also common and seen on every trip out birding but trying to trap and ring them is more difficult as we ring in a reed-bed area where are much less common. We did manage to trap on last time we were ringing, a new ringing species for me, and in the hand the tail pattern with brownish outer tail feathers and the warm brownish underwing was obvious.
