General

The following is based on analysis of dictionaries and other sources. Comments and corrections welcome. Malaysian names are now being updated. For consistency, Vietnamese bird names (except for ducks and chickens) are preceded by the word Chim meaning 'bird'. Ornithological lists mostly omit this as understood. Hover over Green Lettering Green lettering at this site hides a tool tip with glosses, further explanations, etc. Hover cursor to reveal. to see additional information.

The larks are known as Chim sơn ca in Vietnamese (ca = 'sing'). (Somewhat mysteriously, Bui Phung's Vietnamese-English dictionary gives Chim chà chiện as meaning 'Mongolian lark', although this bird has not been recorded in Vietnam.)

For some reason, Danh Lục Các Loài Chim ở Việt Nam (Latinh, Việt, Pháp, Hán) (33) lists Mirafra erythroptera as Chim Sơn ca Ấnđộ, although this species occurs only in India.
