The Lark is a small passerine bird which breeds in southern Africa. It derives its name from the wing clapping which forms part of the display flight.

It has at least three distinctive subspecies which are considered by some authorities to be full species.

The Eastern Clapper Lark, M. (a.) fasciolata, is found in much of the drier parts of southern Africa in Zambia, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa. Fasciolata differs in display from the other forms, and has a better claim to species level classification than majoriae.

Lark is a species of open grassland and savanna, with the two southern forms also inhabiting karoo, fynbos and fallow agricultural land.
