Larks, which are part of the family Alaudidae, 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. They have more elaborate calls than most birds, and often extravagant songs
given in display flight (Kikkawa 2003). These melodious sounds (to human ears), combined with a willingness to expand into anthropogenic
habitats — as long as these are not too intensively managed — have ensured larks a prominent place in literature and music, especially the Eurasian skylark
in northern Europe and the crested lark
and Calandra lark
in southern Europe.
