-- Ivory-bill Books etc. --

------------------------------------------------------------------

DOH!! I should've thought to do this BEFORE Christmas, but oh well... here's a link to an Amazon listing of major works they offer dealing with the Ivory-billed Woodpecker:

My personal favorites continue to be:

"In Search of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker" -- Jerome Jackson
"The Ivory-billed Woodpecker" -- James Tanner
"The Race to Save the Lord God Bird" -- Phillip Hoose

with these two runner-ups:

"Travails of Two Woodpeckers" -- Noel Snyder, David Brown, Kevin Clark
"Ghost Birds" -- Stephen Lyn Bales

One book listed, published this year (at $76 in paperback!!!) I'm totally unfamiliar with:

"The Ivory-billed Woodpecker" edited by Frederic Miller, Agnes Vandome, John McBrewster

If anyone can fill me in on this recent volume (and why the price!?) please feel free to comment below or email me.

Hi I enjoy reading your blog! Recently though...I guess since yesterday I can no longer see the text for some reason. The links show but I can't see the text unless I highlight as if I'm copying it. I'm not sure why, but thought I'd let you know.
 
thanks for letting me know (how bizarre!). If others are experiencing same problem let me know what browser you're using -- I've made a number of (minor?) HTML changes recently, for cosmetic and housecleaning changes, but if one of you techies out there know what might cause such a problem chime in.
Everything appears normal on my end using either Firefox or Safari or even an old Camino browser, so are you using Chrome or Int. Explorer (or perhaps Opera, or something else)??? And I assume this is only happening with my blog, not any others you visit...
 
Re: the Miller et.al. book above, an emailer sends me this link regarding "Alphascript"the book's publisher:

...let's just say, I don't think I'd be spending any $$$, let alone $76, on that volume!
 
I can't read the text either. I suppose it too has become elusive.
I am using Internet Explorer.
Will the text be....rediscovered?
 
No problems on my end with Firefox and my old Powermac G4 (not even an Intel processor).

And no problems with Safari which I use as a "clean" browser (usually resetting it and dumping all the cookies after each session) to visit sites that might stick excess unwanted junk into my system...

I just checked, though, and I don't get the images from the thumbnails over on the IBWO forum on Firefox... But I just tried it on Safari, and there they were... Probably something in my Firefox prefences; they send me a lot more security "updates" than Safari/Apple does....
 
Thanks for the info. I do use IE so that was probably why I was having the problem, but I can see your blog now. :) Thanks!
 
I've tweaked things to make text readable for #%$@*&)!! Internet Explorer; but at some point still may have to re-try certain other changes (too exhausted now).
Thanks Microsoft for ruining my New Year's weekend! :-[
