You have probably seen Horned Larks from a distance as you drive around Delmarva’s rural areas. North America’s only native lark, they are easily seen feeding on weed and grass seeds in farm fields. But it is only when you get close you can see the feather tufts that give this handsome lark its devilish name. It is interesting too that while the adults eat mostly seeds they feed insects to their young.
