Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Taxonomically, Mirafra Colmansi (Irish Lark) bears no relation to the avian shown in your photograph. The Irish Lark, apart from its very active mating periods, is pink, not yellow.

According to wikipedia, the Irish Lark has a high-pitched mating call 'eeetiii - eetiii' sometimes referred to as the 'bog-whine'. Extravagant songs and display flights are also common. Like all larks, there is a willingness to expand in anthropogenic habitats.

Most larks are dull in appearance and feed on insects and seeds. They are rarely egrarious.

You can't be me, I'm taken
