"When I start thinking about ivory-billed woodpeckers, I find it hard to stop. They hitch and flap and peck around in my head; they make me think about large issues, like extinction, and small things, like the look in their eyes, the gloss of their feathers."
I'm feeling a tad nostalgic today, so just a link back to one of Julie Zickefoose's wonderful pieces written over a decade ago (before Sparling, before Cornell, before Auburn, before Kulivan) that most of you have no doubt already read:

Thanks so much for the shout-out, Cyberthrush! That piece is going in my upcoming book, which BTW is not an anthology, but I still like it; it's still oddly germane without changing a word, and I want to paint more ivory-bills. Saving them for dessert!
 
Glad to hear you have a new book on the way JZ (in time for Christmas??? ;-) And of course hoping you get the chance to paint more IBWOs one day... from fresh photos!
