697. Anthus rubescens. 6.5 inches

These are Arctic birds that spend the winter months in the United States.

We find them in flocks along roadsides or in fields, feeding upon weed seeds.

They are shy and take wing readily, uttering sharp whistles as they wheel about in the air.
They are always restless and stay in a place but a short time.

They nest on the ground in northern Canada. Eggs grayish, profusely specked with brown.
