From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Skylark \Sky"lark`\, n. (Zool.)
     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]
