Mirafra sabota

The sabota lark (Calendulauda sabota) is a species of lark in the Alaudidae family.


M. sabota has a vast range spanning the countries of Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. Its global extent of occurrence is estimated to be about 2,300,000 km2.[1]


Its natural habitats are dry savannah, moist savannah, and subtropical or tropical dry shrubland.

Taxonomic note[edit]

Bradfield's lark (Calendulauda naevia), formerly thought to be a separate species, is now considered to be a subspecies of C. sabota.[1] It has a larger bill than C. sabota, and is endemic to Namibia.
