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.

-- Weekend Non-update --


Jane Goodall on primates:


and E.O. Wilson on saving life on Earth:


Meanwhile, an emailer asks about a prediction for the Republican VP selection so another short, simple list here (starting from most to less likely):

Lindsey Graham
Charlie Crist
Joe Lieberman

And I'll pare down my Obama list to just 3 as well, in same (most to less likely) order:

Colin Powell
Jim Webb
Bill Bradley

(This all assumes there are elections in the U.S. this year, and that McCain and Obama are among the contenders.)

....Will also predict heat and high humidity (somewhere) for the weekend.

As to IBWO news? ...no predictions for now, but expecting a long, dull summer.

You're really bold with those predictions. I'll give you credit for that.

This has nothing to do with the Veep, but I just came back from Acadia National Park where I saw 2 peregrine falcons feeding their young. By my count, the chicks are still not old enough to fly. The peregrines fought or scared off turkey vultures, a sea gull, and a red-shouldered hawk.

No Ivory Bills there, though. Jaws would drop if they had been seen.
As you may be aware there are several Peregrine Falcon nestcams available on the Web (some may have already fledged by now), and increasingly they're showing up in more urban environments for easier viewing.

As far as Veeps go, while there are some specific reasons for those choices, it's also just a process of elimination -- so many of the names being widely touted have major downsides (to go with their pluses), that I think will scratch them from the list once fully vetted (but I haven't predicted anything else right in politics this yr. so....)
