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.

-- Georgia Search in Press --

The search for the Ivory-bill in Georgia's Okefenokee Swamp is being covered by Associated Press:


The most interesting line to me is as follows (italics added by me):
"While we believe it is unlikely ivory-bills have survived in Georgia, we do expect to identify locations with habitat that could support an ivory bill," DNR spokesman Ben Johnson said Monday. "We hope that years from now we might be able to reintroduce ivory bills into Georgia."

I'll assume this is just an off-the-cuff remark and doesn't mean that any capture-and-release or captive-breeding programs have been discussed by authorities?
