You heard it here first! (Sort of..)

Well, it's not-quite-official, but a major leak today has all but blown the lid off any pretense of secrecy: Ivory-billed Woodpecker reports from the Chocktawhatchie [Choctawhatchee] River in NW Florida include extensive sound recordings, and what may be the best sight record since the 1940's from a real, bone fide birder. Everyone has been saying "Chockta-where?" and going on about how Tanner missed it, none of the "lists" anticipated it, etc. etc.

Well nyah nyah nyah I say to all y'all!

Remember my little survey of potential IBWO habitat from this spring? Check out my list for Florida. And what do you see as #4 on my west-to-east list? Hmmm?

Correct spelling: Choctawhatchee

I'll get that right eventually. After a few dozen hatchies and hoochees and coochees and chocs and coosas and all that the spellings kinda get jumbled in yer brain...
