Long-legged Pipit

Anthus pallidiventris

The Long-legged Pipit, also known as the Long-clawed Pipit, is a distinguished member of the Motacillidae family. This avian species is characterized by its notably elongated legs, which it uses to gracefully navigate its grassland habitat.

Identification Tips

When attempting to identify the Long-legged Pipit, one should look for its defining long legs and the subtle hues that adorn its plumage. Its appearance is marked by a pale underbelly, which contrasts with the surrounding environment.

Habitat

The natural abode of the Long-legged Pipit is the subtropical or tropical dry lowland grassland. Here, it finds solace and sustenance, thriving in the open spaces that these ecosystems provide.

Distribution

This species has a presence across a swath of Central Africa, with sightings confirmed in Angola, Cameroon, Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, and Gabon.

Conservation status

The Long-legged Pipit is currently classified as Least Concern by the IUCN. This status indicates that, for now, the species is not facing an immediate threat of extinction in the wild.

In the spirit of conservation, it is our collective responsibility to ensure that the Long-legged Pipit continues to grace the grasslands of Central Africa for generations to come.

Great bird recording
For a while I’ve been trying to find an app to easily record bird lists and day out and struggled to find one that I like. Birda is great for this, straightforward and a great community!

Makes you want to spot birds more
I think this app is fun. It makes you want to spot birds more so I guess in a way it encourages you to get out and about instead of sitting in front of the TV.

Sense of Community
A great app, which is continually being improved. What really comes through is the passion of those behind the app. The sense of community is brilliant, so much help and support provided to new and/or in experienced birders.

Great app for bird lovers
I love this app! It’s a wonderful way to track birding sessions, and also connect you with fellow birders. I also really like the unidentified bird section, it’s a great community tool to help figure out what a never-before-seen bird is!
