Iconic Ivory-billed woodpecker back from the dead
When my husband showed me the article in this morning's Denver Post, I knew I must go to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and get a photo of the diarama featuring several species of "extinct" birds--one of them being the Ivory-billed Woodpecker.
Tomorrow's issue of Science Magazine will feature a report on the research which leads the team from Cornell's Laboratory of Ornithology to believe they have definitely found one and potentially others in the "Big Woods" region of eastern Arkansas.

There are so many animals, insects and plants being added to the lists of Extinct and Endangered species that it is refreshing to read about a survivor.
