horned lark

Classification

 Kingdom: Animalia
 Phylum: Chordata
 Class: Aves
 Order: Passeriformes 
 Family: Alaudidae
Horned LarkThere are 91 species in this family. Most species of lark are found in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Only two species, the horned lark and the Eurasian Skylark, are found in North America. There is also one species, the Australasian lark, found in Australia.

Larks have a long, straight claw on their hind toe known as the larkspur. Larks nest on the ground and are usually dull in color. Larks are also known for their beautiful songs.

The horned lark is found throughout North America. It is also found in Asia and Europe. It lives in open areas like prairies, fields, and the tundra. The horned lark is about seven inches in length. It is brown on its uppersides and white on its belly. It has a black neck patch and a black mask on its face. It gets its name from the tufts of feathers on its head that look like horns.

The Eurasian Skylark is found in Vancouver Island, British Columbia. It is an introduced species that is native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. The skylark was introduced in 1903 by the British Columbia Natural History Society. The society imported 100 birds from Great Britain and then released them into the wild.
