Woodland Pipit

Anthus nyassae Neumann, 1906

The Wood Pipit or Woodland Pipit (Anthus nyassae) is a small passerine bird belonging to the pipit genus Anthus in the family Motacillidae. It was formerly included in the Long-billed Pipit (Anthus similis) but is now frequently treated as a separate species. It is a bird of miombo woodland in south-central Africa, unlike the Long-billed Pipit which inhabits open grassland. It perches in trees when flushed but forages on the ground for invertebrates.
