Anthus Pensilvanicus definitions

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Pipit Pip"it, n. [So named from its call note.] (Zo["o]l.) Any one of numerous species of small singing birds belonging to Anthus and allied genera, of the family Motacillid[ae]. They strongly resemble the true larks in habits, colors, and the great length of the hind claw. They are, therefore, often called titlarks, and pipit larks. Note: The meadow pipit (Anthus pratensis); the tree pipit, or tree lark (A. trivialis); and the rock pipit, or sea lark (A. obscurus) are well-known European species. The common American pipit, or brown lark, is Anthus Pensilvanicus. The Western species (A. Spraguei) is called the American skylark, on account of its musical powers.
