skylark

(Science: zoology) A lark that mounts and sings as it files, especially the common species (Alauda arvensis) found in Europe and in some parts of asia, and celebrated for its melodious song; called also sky laverock. See Lark.

The Australian skylark (Cincloramphus cantillans) is a pipit which has the habit of ascending perpendicularly like a skylark, but it lacks the song of a true lark. The Missouri skylark is a pipit (Anthus Spraguei) of the western united states, resembling the skylark in habit and song.
