They've found the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker in Arkansas! This might be the most significant news, at least to birders, in more than 50 years - I can't think of anything like it since the Takahe (a giant, flightless coot) was rediscovered in New Zealand in the 1940s.

Nice to have a little beacon of hope in these dark days. We're resting for an evening in Atlanta after the first shows of the tour, which were uniformly wonderful, including our first-ever shows in lovely Florida! We hope we'll be back soon.

Wow, where at in AR. Jonathan? That's where I grew up (in the southeast area).

I think the area is called Big Woods. This is so cool, and it's also very interesting to read the Science paper that reports the finding--the supplementary online information has (blurry) video and scans of the drawings and notes the search team made.
