English → English (gcide) Definition: Anthus Spraguei Skylark \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. [1913 Webster] 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. [1913 Webster] Pipit \Pip"it\, n. [So named from its call note.] (Zo["o]l.) Any one of numerous species of small singing birds belonging to Anthus and allied genera, of the family Motacillid[ae]. They strongly resemble the true larks in habits, colors, and the great length of the hind claw. They are, therefore, often called titlarks, and pipit larks. [1913 Webster] Note: The meadow pipit (Anthus pratensis); the tree pipit , or tree lark (Anthus trivialis); and the rock pipit, or sea lark (Anthus obscurus) are well-known European species. The common American pipit, or brown lark, is Anthus Pensilvanicus. The Western species (Anthus Spraguei) is called the American skylark , on account of its musical powers. [1913 Webster]
