Ivory-bill coverage on

A quick glance just now at's homepage revealed an article about the Ivory-billed Woodpecker search.

That the article appears on the "top fold" of's homepage makes me smile. That it was distributed by Reuters news service makes me wonder where else the article appeared.

How much "play" is this story getting outside the birding world? Does it intrigue nonbirders as much as it does many birders?

I liked the last graf of the article. It sounds encouraging.
Signs describing the ivory-bill have weathered well in Arkansas, [U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service spokesman Jon] Andrew said. "We have signs that were put up in April that have not one bullet hole in them -- which is a reflection, I think, of the community's reaction to the bird."
