IVORY-BILLS  LiVE???!  ...

=> THE blog devoted to news and commentary on the most iconic bird in American ornithology, the Ivory-billed Woodpecker (IBWO)... and... sometimes other schtuff.

....and still the plot thickens

Even as the recent skeptics are swinging to the 'believer' side, no less than David Luneau (Arkansas searcher who took the controversial brief IBWO video clip) posted the following cautionary note to the AR. bird listserv today:

-- "The sound recordings that have been referred to in recent news reports are still being analyzed. It is premature to assume that they are recordings of IBWOs as reported in the press, as that conclusion has not been reached by everyone involved.
There will be a presentation on the results (to date) of the acoustic data given by Russ Charif of Cornell at the AOU meeting in late August.
As of now, none of the recordings are available to the public." --

This does seem oddly at variance with both the reported statements of certain Cornell-associated individuals as well as the expressed certitude of former skeptics R. Prum and M. Collins... but David usually knows whereof he speaks!
