A story published Thursday the UKs BBC News has ornithologists swooning. A spectacular bird long thought extinct was spotted by a lone kayaker in the Big Woods of Arkansas—he said "the creature did not look quite like anything he had seen before." So he contacted the right people and it was confirmed on video within a month. This article is amazingly blogable because it seems like every paragraph is worth highlighting and clicking BlogThis!.
"This is huge, just huge. It is kind of like finding Elvis."I like that last one the best because it makes this story into the start of something bigger. This also makes me wonder how many bird-bloggers there are out there. Seems like a blog would be a good way to share the particulars of that sort of endeavor. (Via)
"It's like a funeral shroud has been pulled back, giving us a glimpse of a living bird, rising Lazarus-like from the grave."
"For those of us who tenaciously cling to the idea that man can live alongside fellow species, this is the most incredible ray of hope."
