about

This song is about the 3 Northern Lapwings that touched down in New Egypt, NJ, in 2013 - very rare in these parts.

lyrics

Northern Lapwing

Have you heard?
The birds are back again
But I don't know when
They'll fly away

Have you seen
The green and purple feathers?
And you wondered whether or not
They'd stay all day

I'm heading down to New Egypt
Where farmers wonder why
So many people have appeared
On muddy roads that are never clear

Have you heard?
The birds are back again
But I don't know when
They'll fly away

Every person on this highway
Drives by unaware
Of three birds that flew so far
Yet, magically, here they are

Blackbirds descend
With views that cameras crave
These images will not be saved
Not be saved
So in your mind's eye
You have to remember

You have seen
Those green and purple feathers
And you wondered whether or not
They'd stay all day

Have you heard?
Have you heard?
There are birds
