Thekla Lark

Galerida theklae Brehm, AE, 1857

The Thekla Lark (Galerida theklae) breeds in Iberia, northern Africa, and sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal to Somalia. It is a sedentary species. This is a common bird of dry open country, often at some altitude. The Thekla Lark was named by Alfred Edmund Brehm in 1857 for his recently deceased sister Thekla Brehm (1833-1857). The name is a modern Greek one, Θεκλα (Thekla), which comes from ancient Greek Θεοκλεια (Theokleia) derived from θεος (theos, "God") and κλεος (kleos, "glory" or "honour"). Source: Wikipedia
