Every Morning I Hear Them

Every morning i hear them in the park nearby in the gray of daybreak
The calls of the magpie larks none can mistake
Some name them by their distinctive song of pee wee
They build their cup shaped nest of mud on low branch of tree
Because of this some refer to them as mudlark but a name just a name
But magpie lark, pee wee or mudlark are of one and the same
Pale eggs that look a lighter shade of gray
With tiny brown spots through them the female bird does lay
Black and white birds slightly bigger than a blackbird in Australia widespread, abundant and well known
The magpie larks are birds who have a charm of their own
Familiar birds to many and familiar birds to me
I see and hear them often sing their familiar song pee wee
Abundant throughout Australia and they are known Nationwide
Magpie larks live in the town parks the outback and countryside.
