"The search is on"

From the AP via Yahoo! News:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Kip Davis and Jay Robison saw what they believed was an ivory-billed woodpecker on Thursday, one of thousands of reported sightings piling up as leaves in an east Arkansas swamp drift down.


Connie Bruce, a spokeswoman for Cornell University's Lab of Ornithology, which is researching the possible re-appearance of the ivory-billed woodpecker, said the search continues despite no evidence being turned up last winter.

"The search is on," Bruce said. "This is very important to us. We all want to locate this bird."

here for all of it

Seriously, if you've seen this woodpecker anywhere, please contact your local animal control office. This is a problem we've got to address. We're losing too many soldiers in Iraq as it is, we can't afford to lose this woodpecker.
