We can see Tenerife in the distance. The peak, Teide, is 3718 meters high. No wonder it’s visible above the clouds.
Peeping nearby is a Berthelot’s Pipit. It’s against a deep ravine in beautiful blue shadow.
It takes a while to work myself close to it without diverting it from feeding.
There’s a different subspecies of Berthelot’s Pipit in Madeira, but this is the Canary Islands subspecies, Anthus berthelotii berthelotii.
It’s a very smart bird indeed.
