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.

-- More Notes --


Duly noted... I only recently discovered (though it's been around for almost a year) Scott Weidensaul has his own blog going at:


Hmmm, David Sibley was blogging for awhile; now we just need to get Pete Dunne blogging (I mean the guy writes about 10 hours a day anyway, doesn't he?).
Speaking of Pete, he will be the keynote speaker at the Georgia Colonial Coast Birding and Nature Festival coming up in October. The times they are a changin': this, and other yearly birding festivals are no longer including Ivory-bill themes or presentations as was almost obligatory a couple years back. Let's hope the upcoming search season changes all that, but then again don't be holdin' your breath.

Last year USF&W released their summary of the prior search season before the end of Sept. Given a slightly more restricted search this past season and less to report maybe the release date this year could be a tad earlier...

The fun news today is the big hairy Bigfoot parked in some small freezer from your neck of the words. Ain't ya gonna cover it?
"Fun" is the most generous term I could use for it! Story had too many earmarks of a hoax from the get-go, and no, won't be covered here.
Sir Cyberthrush, one of the ads on this page says "Get Rid of Woodpeckers." Ha!
yes, I don't have control over the ads Google places here (there are several I don't like) -- the 'getting rid of...' ads are simply for products that deter woodpeckers from destroying household siding, panels, gutters, and the like (a common problem).
If Patricia wants some rock-and-roll discussions about Bigfoot, I invite her to do a Google search on my friend, Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Steve Benson, who hangs his easel on a certain recovery bulletin board. I'll withhold identifying it because I don't want to give offense, but yes, I mud wrestle there as well in another Internet identity, but disclosing it might draw more trolls than an Obama supporter visiting a right wing evangelical site.

Speaking of Obama supporters, I think this guy is one . . .


I think bird-blogging might just catch on, ct! In addition to Sibley and Weidensaul, Kenn Kaufman is now doing it, the the American Birding Association is doing it, and the Cornell Lab or Ornithology is doing it. Yahoo!!
