They are talking about the Ivory-billed Woodpecker in India, in Germany, in Canada and in the United Kingdom! [the UK article is from the NewScientist, not from the general press]
There will be a press conference about the Ivory-billed Woodpecker rediscovery at NOON today. Also, the leading journal, Science, will update their website at noon today (why not earlier? Don't they know I have an interview this afternoon??). Original video clips of the bird will also be available on the web, sometime after noon today.
I was surprised it took the press so long to use Frank Gill's quote (see blog entry below) as part of a headline, but it finally happened; 'Elvis' of woodpeckers sighted after 60 years. This MSNBC News story includes another painting of a pair of Ivory-billed Woodpeckers in their natural habitat.
