    It still might well be Woodstock, though. This particular bird does seem to have had more attention paid to it than any other. and it’s head is pretty close to how Woodstock came to be drawn. I’ve been waiting to see.

    Let me repost what I posted on the first appearance of this bird:

    I don’t think we can be positive as to if this is actually Woodstock or not. Every source I have found was written after Schulz’s passing. Wikipedia is based on a book 17 years after he passed, and the page didn’t exist until 2020. Both of these list April 4th, 1967 as the first appearance.

    Fandom Wiki lists March 4, 1966, as the first appearance of Woodstock but doesn’t list any source.

    My personal belief is that this looks like the same bird as next year, and flies the same way. Prior to this, no birds drawn by Schulz looked like this, including the one that built the nest. So I believe this is Woodstock, and he simply came back to the person/dog who “raised” him.

    I also think it would be strange that this bird appears in 15 stips from March 3rd to May 22, then a completely different bird who looks and flies the same would suddenly appear less than a year later.

    If somebody finds a source from Schulz, please link it here.
