Artist's Description

Being a non-descript brown bird, the outstanding feature of the Eurasian Skylark is its well-known song. The subject of emotional outpourings by British poets for centuries, the Skylark’s song provides a pleasant background to many open grasslands, pastures and crops in south-eastern Australia. That is exactly the effect that people in the 19th century hoped to achieve when they released Skylarks into the Australian countryside by the hundred. Once considered to be the supreme songster, the songs of many native grassland birds are now generally recognised as being superior.
