Photo of an ivory-billed woodpecker, taken in Lousiana's Singer Tract in 1935.

Yep, I've heard all about it and it's now all over the bird forums. I hope the poor thing isn't mobbed now . Lovely bird, alot like the bird that got me started in avian photography in the first place, the Pileated. Thanks for the link.

It being overrun is a big concern. But people need to realize that many Professional (work for Cornell's Lab of Ornithology) birders spent an entire year looking and only saw it twice. It's in a large remote area... good luck!

For more links check out this page:

They collected many links from around the web and put them in one place.

The NPR link is nice because you can listen to the radio programs as well (they did a few several days in a row.)

Itwould be great if there is still a population of these birds alive and well.

The Nature Conservancy site says that the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker has beenseen more thana dozen times during the year long search. Seen more than a dozen timesby members of a team of experts---- accomplished wildlife photographers /scientists and experienced birdersexcitedly searching for a previously thought to be extinct bird.

The best I can understand, all ofthatproduced a fuzzy 4 second video that theybelieve is of an Ivory-Billed Woodpecker.No photos.

Unless of course, they will be included ina soon to be for sale book(s).
