Rare photo of a Birdorable Ivory-billed Woodpecker

The Ivory-billed Woodpecker is one of the largest woodpecker species in the world. The bird is shiny blue-black with extensive white markings on its neck and on both the upper and lower trailing edges of its wings. It has a pure white bill and displays a prominent top crest, red in the male and black in the female.

That is what most people agree on, but what they don't agree on is if it's either extremely rare or extinct! There is no solid proof of recent sightings of the birds, but some people do claim they have seen it in the woods of the Southeastern United States.

Heavy logging activity and hunting by collectors decimated the population of Ivory-billed Woodpeckers in the late 1800s. It was generally considered extinct in the 1920s, when a pair turned up in Florida, only to be shot for specimens. By 1938, an estimated 20 individuals remained in the wild, some 6-8 of which were located in the old-growth forest called the Singer Tract in Louisiana.

By 1944 the last known Ivory-billed Woodpecker, a female, was gone from the cut-over tract. Reports of at least one male bird in Arkansas in 2004 and 2005 were reported in April 2005 by a team led by the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. But no real evidence exist of the sighting, making many believe that the bird is extinct. The Ivory-billed Woodpecker is the miracle bird of the century - or is it?

Peach-faced Lovebirds, also known as Rosy-faced Lovebirds, are delightful little birds native to the arid landscapes of southwestern Africa. These birds are not only notable for their vibrant coloration but also for their lively and sociable nature. As gregarious creatures, Peach-faced Lovebirds thrive in the company of their kind, often found chirping loudly and congregating in small, animated groups in the wild.

Their day-to-day activities are a joy to observe. These lovebirds have a busy schedule that includes feeding throughout the day and indulging in frequent baths. When it comes to their appearance, there's a fascinating variation in coloration among different populations. Typically, females exhibit a darker and greener hue, while males tend to be smaller with brighter plumage.

One of the most endearing behaviors of Peach-faced Lovebirds is their unique sleep position. These birds love to sit side-by-side, turning their faces toward each other in a cozy and heartwarming display of affection. This behavior not only reinforces their bonds but also epitomizes why they're named 'lovebirds.'

Adding to their charm, female Peach-faced Lovebirds showcase remarkable nest-building skills. They are known to skillfully tear raw materials into long strips and ingeniously 'twisty-tie' them onto their backs. These resourceful females then fly back to their nesting site with these materials to construct a comfortable and secure nest for their eggs.

The Peach-faced Lovebird, with its vivid appearance, social habits, and adorable behaviors, truly embodies the essence of cuteness and is a wonderful example of nature's beauty and ingenuity. Whether observed in the wild or as cherished pets, these birds bring joy and color to the lives of those who encounter them.
