So rare, it is held with mystical regard by bird lovers across America. Thought to be extinct since 1880, the Ivory-billed Woodpecker was rediscovered in the "Big Woods" of eastern Arkansas in Feb 2004. This is one of the largest such birds in the world, thought to have a life-span of around 15-20 years. The great ornithologist Roger Tory Peterson called it "A whacking big bird," because at nearly two feet long, possessing a three-foot wingspan and a pterodactyl crest of black and white with a streak of red, it is an awe-inspiring bird. They are recognizable by their enormous ivory-colored bills and their unique way of "double knocking" the tree trunk as they forage for beetle larvae and insects.
This ivory-billed woodpecker plush toy sings the actual song of the species! Measures 6 inches.
