After being believed to be near-extinct, there was a historical sighting of an ivory-billed woodpecker in Arkansas. This set off a motion of events that Margaret Middleton chronicled in a very creative parody to The Battle of New Orleans.  The insert reads, “When the ivory-bill rediscovery story first broke on NPR in April 2005… I suddenly  had this playing in my head”.

“B-side” (amusingly called): After seeing the Discovery channel program… about the news/website video of October 4’s flight I had a hunch there was a song about Space Ship One hiding in the old-time hymn ‘Great Speckled Bird’.

A two-song homemade CD, it was put onto disks that looked like vinyl album in remembering of the 45. These are very rare. In fact, the artist no longer has the files to even consider making more. They have been tested for playability and are sealed for their protection.
