As many of you know I am an early riser, although don’t think I have ever heard a lark join in with the dawn chorus. It also wasn’t dawn when I took this shot of a lark a year or two ago, however I just had to use this title for today’s SquareUp!

My apologies for not visiting squares or replying to comments yesterday. Not only was I awake before dawn, but I was on the telephone/Zoom nearly all day and kind of ran out of screen time energy. I promise will catch up today with everyone, but for now here’s a Crested Lark singing away in Portugal. Not at dawn but at 5:00 in the evening.

Recorded by Peter Boesman in Portugal in 2018, XC416640. Accessible at
