Resembles Desert Lark in general appearance but smaller, with more upright stance, rounder head and with orange-yellow bill shorter and finer, also told from Desert by clear-cut black band to tip of reddish brown tail, best seen when tail spread in flight (in Desert, dark brown tail gradually merges into paler brown base) and by rufous-buff wings having noticeably blackish tip (in Desert, long primary-projection at best dark grey-brown). Runs quicker on ground than Desert Lark, with more sudden stops.
