return of the ivory billed woodpecker

The scientists trying to prove that the ivory-billed woodpecker is miraculously not extinct are being conservative, but I heard the audio comparison of its call this morning – a verified one from 1935 and one captured on a remote recorder deep in the Arkansas woods last year. It convinced me!
And what glorious evidence that (at least some) rare and beautiful things still manage to survive humanity’s worst effects. It’s as good as a phoenix!
