Horned Larks have a light voice. Males have two types of songs: short, so-called
intermittent songs, which start with 2-4 short notes and end in a rising jumble of tinkling notes, and much longer, rambling recitative songs (I do not yet have an example of a recitative song). Males sing during flight displays and from the ground or low perches. The bird in this recording was singing from a fence post. (Utah County, Utah).
Habitat: Bare ground or open areas with short, sparse vegetation; shores.
