Thought Extinct...Ivory-Billed Woodpecker, Alive! Rediscovered in Arkansas
Did you hear about this? I just heard about it this morning when someone posted about it on another board I frequent. I also see that it was confirmed in my National Wildlife Federation newsletter.
It's truly amazing, isn't it!
Here's another link, too:

||It was also in our Long Island Newsday.....The bird has a wingspan of 3 feet and 20 inches in length....It's "prehistoric" looking!

||I had a friend over last night when I heard the pre-commercial teaser on NPR. I dropped everything and ran over to turn up the radio. She looked at me like I was nuts. I managed to call my mother before the broadcast to be sure she listened, and she called my sister in Kansas and she called..... well, you get the picture. Once the broadcast was over, I explained to my guest that this bird was last seen 60 years ago and was thought to be extinct and she started getting excited and went home to research the ivory bills. We have a new Featherhead to add to the group!
