Horned Lark

I am surprised by how pink Horned Larks are. This one guarded a dirt road in Goodhue County on 6 November 2018. I pulled sideways to get this photograph, but, unfortunately on-coming traffic obliged me to move. (There are laws agains texting while driving in Minnesota, but I am unaware of prohibitions against bird photography.) Horned Larks are extremely variable in coloration, with some 21 races described across the continent.
