"Talk of my death is greatly exaggerated." said the Ivory-billed Woodpecker.
I couldn't be gladder to see that this fine bird, not seen for 60 years, is not extinct as was feared. Several sightings in the Big Woods of southeastern Arkansas and even videotape. I always expected it was still with us. I trapsed around many a hardwood forest in the Dolby Hills (northern Louisiana) hoping to see one.
I hope we now take steps to ensure this endangered species has adequate habitat to survive.
