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.

-- Condors Today, IBWOs ....?

Not Ivory-bills, but too good not to pass along, this recently-released uplifting photo of a rare captive-released California Condor currently nesting in an also rare California Redwood in the Big Sur area of Calif.; something not seen in northern Ca. for a hundred years :


Any chance an Ivory-bill at a nesthole in AR. could be next....?

BTW, since suggesting that Harrison Ford could play Cornell's Dr. Fitzpatrick in the yet-to-be-made "Ivory-bills Live! -- The Movie," I've had a few more suggestions via email; the cast is shaping up as follows:

Gene Sparling -- Gene Hackman
Bobby Harrison -- Kris Kristofferson
Tim Gallagher -- Ron Howard
David Luneau -- Kevin Bacon
Jerome Jackson -- Robert De Niro
David Sibley -- Matthew Broderick

: - )

And who will play Mary Scott?....indeed why isn't Mary, who saw IBWO in Arkansas a year before Gene Sparling, even mentioned by most people?
What action-packed scene is Sibley going to appear in? You could save production costs and just show the back of some $50 extra watching video and shaking his head, like they showed George Steinbrenner in the Seinfeld series.
Don Knotts = jackson
Good point on Mary Scott

I would really like to see Mary get a little bit more recognition as well.

If Mary had not forwarded Gene Sparling's original email on to Tim Gallagher, this may have been just another Ivorybill report that got swept by the wayside like so many others have.
Who would play the Ivory-bill?

I guess they would probably have to have a Pileated Woodpecker play the Ivory-billed....no, wait! That movie has already been made and grossed millions for the people who produced it. It's kind of blurry and is getting a few bad reviews but you can't argue with anything that does that well at the box office and has, at least some, audiences enthralled. Also I would like the producers of any future movies to know that I can look a great deal like Brad Pitt if the camera is in a canoe and I am in back of a tree. And I will work for well below his average movie contract.
