BACK FROM EXTINCTION: the IVORY BILLED WOODPECKER HOAX
I love the story about the woodpecker that came back from "extinction." Maybe it just evolved a superior means of hiding from the tree-hugging enviros and bird-watchers! "Feared" extinct is how they report it now, but I bet it was claimed as such routinely in press reports before this latest video documentation. It's also interesting how the reports of sightings or hearings of this bird during it's "extinction" were generally discredited before this. GREENIE HOAX, anyone?
