A feather of hope

We thought the ivory-billed woodpecker was extinct.

But it has been sighted in Central Arkansas.

So wonderful to get a bit of good news for a change.

I just heard a story on it on NPR while I was driving home and was planning on putting up a post if you hadn't. So now I don't have to.

I remember hearing the NPR story that ran last year, when they were still searching for it. This is very cool.
