Imagine singing for three minutes while soaring to 100 feet in the air. That is precisely what the Sky Lark does.

No other bird in North America has such a long song or sings so persistently in flight.

Around 1902, Sky Larks were brought from England to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, to satisfy the desire of English immigrants to hear the bird's exalted song.

Sky Larks do what so many birds do - they carry our aspirations and send our spirits soaring.
