-- Mississippi ? --

Cornell mentions Mississippi among the states with upcoming, organized IBWO searches that they are assisting. Mississippi is certainly one of the states most likely harboring Ivory-bills, yet this is the first I've heard of official organized searching there. I'm aware individuals are searching on their own in MS. but can anyone fill me in (preferably via email) on what more official or systematic endeavors are being made???

I wouldn't be surprised if the Forest Service is gearing up for searches in the Delta, Homochitto, and DeSoto National Forests. There have been ivory-bill reports from the Yazoon Basin down the Tunica Hills and across to the Pascagoula. However, I have no direct knowledge of any official efforts. If nothing else there is likely an assessment of habitat going on.
