SKY LARK : Alauda arvensis Linnaeus

Under current trends, in a decade or two we may see the Sky Lark entirely extirpated from North America. Sadly, the Washington State San Juan Island Sky Lark population has been extirpated and was last reported from American Camp State Park in 2000.

At the height of their numbers (over 1000 birds —1965), the introduced Sky Lark ranged from South Victoria up to North Saanich with other small groups in the Cowichen Valley and on the Gulf & San Juan Islands. Today, their last remaining strongholds are restricted to the Martindale Valley south of Island View Rd. in East, Central Saanich; the Vantreight Bulb fields in Central Saanich; and the Victoria International Airport in North Saanich

The population decline has been attributed to a number of factors including changing agricultural practices, urban sprawl and loss of farmland/field habitat, and predation from European Starling and Northwestern Crow. American Camp on San Juan Island has suffered from addition predation from fox and that is likely the cause of their extirpation.
