Larks (Family Alaudidae)

 

Larks are passerine birds of the Family Alaudidae. All species occur

in the Old World, and in northern and eastern Australia; only one, the

shore lark, has spread to North America, where it is called the horned

lark. Habitats vary widely, but many species live in dry regions.

 

Larks are small to medium-sized birds, 12 to 24 cm (5 to 8 inches) in
length and 15 to 75 grams (0.5 to 2.6 ounces) in weight.
