    Default Another Pipit!!!!!

    I'm almost too embarrassed to ask about another one after the great Pipit debate I seemed to have started last time but I find them a gorgeous but very confusing species!

    This was taken in Taba on the Gulf of Aqaba at the end of May.

    Pity that the head pattern is in shadow, but I would plump for Tree Pipit (Anthus trivialis) on other characteristics. But then again......!

    A good curved Tree Pipit hindclaw, rather wide pale sub-moustachial stripe, a thin dark loral stripe through the eye, well visible hodgsoni pale and dark spot at the rear of the ear coverts, acceptable widness of the flank streaks and upperparts pattern makes it all look good for Tree - but not hodgsoni (Olive-backedPipit)

    Agreed, Tree Pipit
