There is a significant lack of knowledge regarding the Sidamo lark's biology and ecology. Like other larks, it is a ground-dwelling bird (3), typically seen stood upright, but it will quickly scuttle away to dense cover when disturbed (2). It is not known what this species feeds on (2), but other larks consume a diet of invertebrates, plant matter and seeds (3). Male Sidamo larks have been observed performing aerial displays between January and May, which involve singing whilst circling over their territory (2).
