Ivory-Billed Woodpecker sighted:

Ivory-Billed Woodpecker sighted: Thought to be extinct since the 1940s, this Holy Grail of American birdwatchers, a spectacular black and white beast with a 30" wingspan, has been sighted in a swampy forest preserve in Arkansas. (Here's James J. Audubon's painting.)

As a conservative, this triumph of conservation makes me deeply happy.
