Duskiy Lark

A pale individual, which rings a bell of subspecies occidentalis. This is, in fact, not impossible, as there is a very large area of intergradation between the two subspecies. According to the rough map in RGV (p.144), this locality may perhaps fall in the transition zone. Perhaps I would prefer subspecies occidentalis, but I do not know these birds all that well.
