I haven’t heard the woodpecker

May 14, 2001

I haven’t heard the woodpecker in a few days, and I wonder if he lost interest in the dead tree out behind my apartment building … I started reading an article about the extinct ivory-billed woodpecker, in the New Yorker Magazine (May 14, 2001 issue). Interesting story, one that makes you ponder the role humans play in the extinction of animals and plants. Read the story next time you’re in your local library, and then post your views on the Zuiker Forum.
