Don't forget it was Cornell that presented the evidence for people to judge 11 months ago.  I think it's reasonable to expect anyone claiming the re-discovery of an extinct bird to bear the burden of proof - not their level-headed detractors.  You either have irrefutable proof or something else.   I personally think Cornell is desperately trying to delay the lawsuits of those who contributed millions and millions of dollars based on their premature claim.  What better way to buy time than to send people on a wild woodpecker chase in a swamp in Arkansas!  I totally agree with Jeff - show me the 'hard' evidence!
