It lives in the Big Woods region of Eastern Arkansas, and perhaps other places in the Southeast as well. Before going into some of the details of the actual discovery, I want to remind you that this is no ordinary bird. To the 70 million Americans that are bird watchers today, and in fact to anyone who has ever seriously browsed a bird book, this is really the most spectacular creature we can ever imagine rediscovering." 6.

SOUNDBITE (English) Gail Norton, Secretary of Interior: "I have worked in endangered species recovery for twenty years. I cannot think of a single time we have ever found a species once thought extinct, and now found to be in existence. This is such a an exciting opportunity, second chances to save wildlife though to be extinct are extremely rare." 10.

Zoom in to image of Ivory-billed woodpecker in flight STORYLINE: The ivory-billed woodpecker, a striking bird that once flourished in the forests of the southeast United States but was thought to have become extinct, has reportedly been sighted in eastern Arkansas. Cornell University researcher John Fitzpatrick said there have been several independent sightings of a bird that appears to be an ivory-billed woodpecker. A video clip of one bird, though blurry, shows key features, including the size and markings, Fitzpatrick reported. Once prized by Indians who believed that its bill possessed magical powers, the ivory bill was also hunted in the late 19th and 20th centuries for its feathers, which were popular on ladies hats. But loss of habitat was its main threat. Fitzpatrick's report was released by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, which is publishing it in the journal Science, and also announced by the Nature Conservancy. The ivory-billed woodpecker, one of the largest such birds in the world, is one of six North American bird species thought to have become extinct since 1880. While somewhat rare, the bird ranged widely across the south eastern United States until logging eliminated many forests between 1880 and the 1940s. Sometimes called the white-back, pearly bill, poule de bois and even Lord God bird, the ivory bill was known for the two-note rap of its bill as it ripped into tree bark in search of edible grubs and beetle larvae. There have been anecdotal reports of the birds, but the last conclusive sighting in continental North America was in 1944 in northern Louisiana. A subspecies of the bird has been reported in Cuba. The new sightings have been in the Big Woods region of Arkansas and each involved a different person or group. About 40 percent of the forest in this region is approaching maturity, and nearby land has been reforested in the last decade. Fitzpatrick identified the bird by magnifying and analyzing individual frames of the video clip.
