Interesting that McCartney III has not one but two bird themed songs, Long Tailed Winter Bird and later Bird Winter.
Started to list the various bird-themed songs fro over the years:
Single Pigeon-great harmonies!
On the Wings of a Nightingale, done by the Everly Brothers. Great song wish he had kept.
anyone think of a bird that has flown away from my memory?
Always loved "Single Pigeon". It was my favorite track on Red Rose Speedway. And, of course, someone elso added Jenny Wren a great song on Chaos and Creation.
This is a bit of a stretch but another song where a bird is mentioned in the lyrics is the great extra track on the Red Rose Speedway Archive Edition:
*Mama's Little Girl
in the lyrics Paul says twice the line..."Singing like a Skylark"
