Please forgive us for making a brief detour back into the IBWO mess/morass.
Today Louis Bevier posted something on BirdForum that included a request for a copy of Gene Sparling's first report of his "sighting" that was allegedly posted on the Arkansas Canoe Club bulletin board.
We say allegedly because we asked for that same thing two years ago, and we weren't able to find it, either:
Where is it???
(Hey, wonder if Louis was that commenter? Anyway...)
So, what gives? Either that post was erased/removed, or it never happenend. Back in 2006, we actually went through that board page-by-page through the date of the "sighting" to try to find it. What's the deal? Where is it? Was is ever there?
