Re: Ivory-Billed Woodpecker Found!


Zem,
Must agree with you whole hearted on this bird!  I was within 4 feet
of one on a Canada Vacation.  It was working on the tree next to our
cabin.  We sat on the porch for hours to watch it!  Better than any
TV!  They are HUGE!  At the time we were thinking - Jurassic Park
time!
