Don't Lark Buntings live on fences? That what they give as the habitat in field guides right?

Okay, I really haven't seen that many, but all the ones I have seen where within five feet of one except one, that was on a telephone poll.

No they do not live on fences but they do spend quite a bit of time on then as do many birds as they are great for viewing the ground for food. Plus being on the fence just makes them easier to find. As is so with many birds. Just try finding the Chestnut-collared Longspur in a farm or ranch field without trespassing without the fence.

This is one I have seen mostly on the ground not on fences. Where did you get this shot? Most of the ones I have seen were in Pawnee National Grasslands in Colorado.
