Pechora Pipit

Overview

Pechora Pipit: Small, shy pipit with heavily streaked, dark brown upperparts. The breast, sides, and flanks are washed yellow with heavy black streaks. Belly and outer tail feathers are white. It is named after the Pechora River Valley in northeastern Russia, where it breeds and nests.

Range and Habitat

Pechora Pipit: Rare visitor to the Aleutians and St. Lawrence Island, Alaska. Found on damp tundra, open forests, and marshlands.

INTERESTING FACTS

Although the call is generally helpful when identifying pipits, this species calls far less than most.
It creeps mouse-like in long grass, and is reluctant to fly even when disturbed.
The Pechora Pipit was first described in 1863 by Robert Swinhoe, an English naturalist.
This, combine with its skulking habits, makes this a difficult bird to find and identify away from its breeding grounds in the Arctic.
