    How long till some idiot shoots it?

    Nice to hear that one of the millions of species of wildlife we drive to extinction is still here.

    I would't be surprised if this is not the only species not really extinct.
    Nature has a funny way of adapting.

    And thousands of tourists and 'scientists' will flock there and ruin its habitat and send it back to extinction =/

    My interest in the Ivory Billed Woodpecker is not altruistic; let's just say the name is fraught with meaning. Like the rhinoceros, whose snout pureed promises to extend the act of love for geezers of my age, the long thought to be extinct bill, ground into a fine powder and added to your food is an aphrodisiac.
    It's hard to get a hold of a rhinoceros and once you do sudden death usually follows, but these woodpeckers even though a large bird, can be taken down relatively easy. Rhinos are in Africa; I can drive to Arkansas in a day.
    This is all good news. [​IMG]

    And to top it off, it tastes almost as good as Whooping Crane!
