Meadow Pipit (Anthus pratensis)

Appearance:

Streaking on flanks just as heavy as that on chest (see Tree Pipit). Legs pinkish. Hind toe long and almost straight. Bill slender with yellowish base. Rump unstreaked. Jerky flight pattern. Generally a featureless bird, and is easily confused with other pipits. Best identified by sound.

Sound:

Contact call a short "eest". Similar to Rock Pipit but shorter,cleaner and most often in quick series. Song very similar to Rock Pipit, but tone less full and more brittle. Lacks Rock Pipit's closing trill, and beginning is less "hammering". Warning call a sharp, high pitched "tzeet". Also a rattling "trrrrt".
