The Oriental skylark (Alauda gulgula), also known as the Oriental lark or small skylark, is a species of skylark found on the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Like other skylarks, it is found in open grassland - often near bodies of water - where it feeds on seeds and insects.

These skylarks frequently rocket up into the sky, fluttering and singing before descending down to earth. Male Oriental skylarks may also hover in the air and sing, in order to attract a mate.

Oriental skylarks are about 16 cm long. They have streaked, yellow-brown upper plumage, with white outer tail feathers and a short crest. Both sexes are similar.
