The Paw Paw Tree

The PawPaw Tree

This drawing of the PawPaw tree with a Yellow Billed Cuckoo by John James Audubon is my favorite drawing of a PawPaw tree.  I think because I love the Yellow Billed Cuckoo.  (and the song about the yellow billed cuckoo)

The folk ballad from Clarence Ashley in the 1920's goes:

"...Oh the Cuckoo, she's a pretty bird
She warbles as she flies
She never hollers cuckoo till the 4th day of July
..."
