Arkansas festival revamped to celebrate woodpecker's rediscovery
The rediscovery of a rare type of woodpecker near Clarendon, Arkansas, is bringing new excitement to the town's annual bird festival. The ivory-billed woodpecker, thought to be extinct for decades, was spotted again last year. Now, some businesses are looking to cash in. One beauty shop owner is offering a special on the woodpecker haircut -- including special coloring -- for 25 dollars. The hair cut is similar to a mohawk, but starts out flatter on the front of the head and then goes up to a point at the back of the head, just like the woodpecker's crest. Tomorrow's festival also will feature the man credited with the first sighting of the bird since 1944.
