This bird inhabits a variety of open spaces with a grassy layer, shrubs and individual trees.
Sexual dimorphism is pronounced, but in field conditions, on site, it is difficult to distinguish male from female. However, there is a little trick, the male has a small crest on his head. And as you can see in these photos, this is a female.
On the 2nd and 3rd photo, this bird has small villi, hairs, wool, or something similar in her beak. Birds cover the nest litter with such soft materials. Nests are located almost at the very ground, at the base of the bushes.
