Ivory-billed woodpecker not extinct?


This video from the USA says about itself:

How do you tell an Ivory-Billed Woodpecker from a Pileated Woodpecker? There are several distinct differences as this video shows. The Ivory-Billed Woodpecker was thought to be extinct, but may have been re-discovered as discussed in the video.

The Ivory-Billed Woodpecker is the one on the right and the Pileated is the one on the left. (This Ivory-Billed Woodpecker specimen was taken in Florida.)

  1. ok i don’t post anything other than on facebook. i can tell you where to find ivory-billed woodpecker it’s going to be in eastern nc. Either in pitt, green, or surrounding area. It can be found in large stands of pines. Even right in some townships such as Ayden to the coast along pines. Not making this up. Have never filmed one but when you see it you will never forget it. It is imprinted in your mind forever.
