-- More From Dr. Hill --

Dr. Hill's latest Auburn update recounts the ongoing deployment of remote cameras for their project, and explains the reasons they are using time-lapse cameras (which will generate a lot of data to sift through, essentially snapping a picture every 12 seconds during daylight hrs.) rather than motion-activated cameras as have been used in the Big Woods (AR.) --- apparently there is still room for debate over the advantages/disadvanatges of different camera set-ups. David Luneau will have an article addressing this topic in the forthcoming Mar/Apr edition of Birding Magazine.
If Dr. Hill's group is successful at photographically documenting the Ivory-bill, several of the techniques they are devising or refining may prove useful in future research endeavors with other species.
