That’s Uncredible!

Texas man misidentifies Red-headed Woodpecker in his back yard as a (probably extinct) Ivory-billed Woodpecker (via The Birdist.). KYTX credulously reports:

KYTX deleted most copies of the story and video from their web page, but this one's still up as I write this. Note that the deleted story was not replaced with a retraction; it just went down the memory hole. No journalistic lapses to see here, folks!

Pizzeria owner near Pittsburgh misidentifies a pigeon as an angel in his security camera footage. KDKA credulously reports. Luckily, they've called in the nuns, who receive extensive training in image and video analysis.
