LAPWINGS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

Changed to a lapwing by th' avenging god,
  He made the barren waste his lone abode,
    And oft on soaring pinions hover'd o'er
      The lofty palace then his own no more.
      - James Beattie, Vergil (pastoral 6)

The false lapwynge, full of trecherye.
      - Geoffrey Chaucer, The Parlement of Fowles
         (l. 47)

Amid thy desert-walks the lapwing flies,
  And tires their echoes with unvaried cries.
      - Oliver Goldsmith, The Deserted Village
         (l. 44)

Now begin;
  For look where Beatrice, like a lapwing runs
    Close by the ground, to hear our conference.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing (Hero at III, i)
