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.

-- A Lil' Blog Housekeeping... and Music --


For the next month or more, regular work will keep me away from a computer for long stretches during day and evening. I'll try to post semi-regularly, but comments received could sit for hours before being moderated and posted, depending on when sent. So if you send along a comment and don't see it for awhile don't be overly concerned unless it goes a full 24 hrs. without appearing. (Am also involved with 3 other (non-bird) blogs now that strip away from IBWO time!)

Have received a few email queries regarding the optimism expressed by a prior commenter... There's plenty I'm not privy to, including much of the work involving that particular individual, but of things I am aware of, which aren't in the public domain, I've not seen anything that is more compelling than what is already part of the public record; nor do I happen to believe, based on various information, that any substantial new evidence is waiting in the wings that will alter the IBWO debate. That judgment could be in error (and obviously, I hope it is ---
Bill Pulliam's latest post BTW, also alludes to further evidence awaiting release). That said, there is certainly still reason for hoping the new 2009 search season may yet produce convincing evidence, and a cautious, patient wait-and-see attitude remains in order. I understand why many/most are well beyond the point of patience, but also understand why impatience could still prove erroneous.

And lastly, a little musical interlude for today:
