“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”

"All truth passes through 3 stages: First it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident."

-- Memphis Article --


A Memphis article recounts the Ivory-bill debate here.

With this search season winding to a close, Dr. Jerry Jackson, who possibly more than anyone is responsible for keeping hope alive for Ivory-bills into the 1990's (though a critic of recent claims), is increasingly pessimistic, saying, "I think it would be something short of a miracle if it is there," and adding, "I think that any betting person would have to say that it's probably extinct."
Allan Mueller of The Nature Conservancy and others involved with the search counter with their belief that recent claims are real and only the elusive photograph or video is yet to be achieved.


p.s. -- I recommended another nestcam site of storks in Germany to readers a few days back, and apparently most folks using Internet Explorer cannot pull the site up (without getting an additional plug-in or some-such) --- puhhleeeze, do yourself a favor and download the Firefox browser here, and give Internet Explorer a quiet funeral.
