Birdchick Podcast #109: Ivory-bill In Texas, Meanwhile Teenagers Find Actual Rare Bird

Another whooping crane has been shot but this time not in Indiana, this time in South Dakota.  There's a $10,000 Reward. There's a hilarious story out of east Texas about a guy in a trailer park who found an ivory-billed woodpecker. Two stations covered it with footage they recorded. One got footage of a red-headed woodpecker, the other started with a red-headed woodpecker and then got footage of a pileated.

One station tried to hide their footage, the other did a follow up that maybe the bird wasn't an ivory-bill after all.

Meanwhile, a pair of teenagers found an actual rare bird, an elaenia.  Will we ever find out what species tho?
