Letters from Alabama (1859)

This public domain image of a pair of Ivory-billed Woodpeckers is from Letters from Alabama by Phillip Henry Gosse, published in 1859.  I first came across this book through a post at the Ivory-bill Rsearcher's Forum.  The author's account details the fact that he found cherries in the stomach contents of the birds.  It's an interesting read.
