IVORY-BILLS  LiVE???!  ...

-- Weekend Update --


Nothing new revealed, but a brief audiocast of a recent Arkansas radio segment HERE summarizing the Ivory-bill search to date.

Bill P. continues his discussion/analysis of double-knocks in the Tennessee hinterlands HERE. It's not clear to me that Cornell has ever taken the Tennessee (or Illinois) data very seriously... in fact, it's not clear to me that overall they've taken any data except from South Carolina and Arkansas very seriously. Arkansas by now seems a bust (you know something is a bust when it's no longer referenced in direct mail fundraising ;-) --- though still worthy of independents making an effort there, and we'll have to wait and see how much of the S. Carolina evidence officials deem worthy of bringing to public attention. They'll no doubt politely acknowledge possibilities in several other states; just not sure their interest extends beyond the polite stage.

The above radio show says Cornell will now "focus and take stock" of the data they have on hand... for further publications. And no doubt they will... the question is, will they tell us anything of significance we haven't already known or surmised for a long time.
