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.

-- Another Film --


Apparently there's yet another Ivorybill-inspired film in-the-making, this one from independent film-maker Alex Karpovsky. Unlike other offerings on the subject which are more strictly documentary in nature this one is fictionalized and described as, "Exploring the twilight of uncertainty between narrative and documentary styles, all truth becomes subjective in this existential comedy about a troubled man desperately searching for an elusive bird, that may, or may not, be real." Ahh yes, more existentialism entering the IBWO debate; Camus would be proud!
I do like the title of the film though, "General Impression of Size and Shape," which pulls the emphasis back to where it should be, on whether or not experienced birders can accurately ID Ivory-bills based on GISS, rather than an emphasis on pixelated field marks.
Homepage for the film is here, but so far not too heavily filled in.
