A breeding resident. Common. Occurs widely across the Waterberg and likely to occur wherever open ground with shortly-grazed or recently-burnt grass cover provides its preferred habitat (recorded in 78% of the Waterberg pentads). In pairs while breeding otherwise in groups or small flocks that exhibit much local movement. Breeds in early summer.
