Webster's 1913 Dictionary
\Sky"lark`\, n. (Zo["o]l.)
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 under {Lark}.

Note: 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.
