Good Environmental News
I'm a bird nut. Particularly fond of my acorn woodpeckers which make use of my sunflower seeds for a few months every spring and summer. Nice to read about one of their cousins making a surprising return to the scene.
Once 'extinct,' a woodpecker flies again:
"Not seen for 60 years, the ivory-billed woodpecker -- called ''the flagship of American extinction'' -- is alive and soaring through Arkansas' ancient cypress swamps."
Some would say that it takes little to please me, but I think this news rates a round of the “Alleluia Chorus”! Mama NomadPost a Comment
