-- Tanner On the Imperial --


Found this 1964 paper by James Tanner on his 1962 search for the Imperial Woodpecker in Mexico an interesting read:


or same piece here in html format: http://tinyurl.com/3qa8xy

Especially interesting that he concludes that hunting, and not habitat loss, is the principal reason for decline of this particular species.

... on a sidenote, a poster at IBWO Researchers Forum notes that the automatic ACONE cameras at Bayou de View (ARK.) have been removed due to incredibly high water levels there. I would think this would mean that many, maybe even all, the Reconyx cameras in the area also had to be removed by now. After a prolonged period of drought throughout much of the southeast many IBWO search areas have been heavily flooded over off-and-on this season.
