Four larks and a wren

Four larks and a wren
EDWARD Lear was no doubt thinking of the famous skylark of England, two pairs having nests in his beard. The UK has three lark species and Africa has 80% of all the world’s 75 lark species. Larks are mostly concentrated in the Old World in their distribution. The Horned Lark alone has colonised South America (Colombia).
