Taken Yesterday, SE idaho. 

Environment: Sagebrush and a few boulders. 

This was taken from quite a distance, sorry for the quality!! But it seems like the facial pattern indicates it would be a horned lark? What do you think? or maybe this is one of those it's best to leave unidentified due to image quality.

Pretty sure that is indeed a Horned Lark. The facial pattern is pretty distinctive. A bird that has eluded me!

@meghann, @Kevin, @Sneat Thanks! This was a lifer for me. Hopefully I get closer next time!

Congrats! I saw my fist one a few moths ago! I was super excited, it was in the top ten on my bucketlist.

For anyone ok with traveling and wanting to see one, Carrizo Plain NM in central CA is unusually reliable for Horned Lark all year round (among other things). I believe that on one time out there I saw about two flocks of about 125 birds each in a 3/4 mile radius.
