The elusive Ivory-billed Woodpecker spotted in Petworth

For birders, the ivory-billed woodpecker is like the holy grail of bird watching. The chances of seeing one of these birds is about as likely as hitting the Powerball. So, as I was walking home from the metro last night, my heart skipped a beat and I rubbed my eyes in disbelief. Could I possibly be this lucky? From about 1/4 mile away I spotted our own Ivory-billed woodpecker, this particular creature was lightning fast, he didn’t stay in one spot and was way too fast for me to snap a picture. I was indeed very lucky for I had spotted an MPD police officer walking the beat. So stay on your toes fellow Petworthians, for you too can spot this elusive creature. Snap a photo and send it to me. Good luck.
