-- Ivory-bill Books etc. --
DOH!! I should've thought to do this BEFORE Christmas, but oh well... here's a link to an Amazon listing of major works they offer dealing with the Ivory-billed Woodpecker:
My personal favorites continue to be:
"In Search of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker" -- Jerome Jackson
"The Ivory-billed Woodpecker" -- James Tanner
"The Race to Save the Lord God Bird" -- Phillip Hoose
with these two runner-ups:
"Travails of Two Woodpeckers" -- Noel Snyder, David Brown, Kevin Clark
"Ghost Birds" -- Stephen Lyn Bales
One book listed, published this year (at $76 in paperback!!!) I'm totally unfamiliar with:
"The Ivory-billed Woodpecker" edited by Frederic Miller, Agnes Vandome, John McBrewster
If anyone can fill me in on this recent volume (and why the price!?) please feel free to comment below or email me.
Everything appears normal on my end using either Firefox or Safari or even an old Camino browser, so are you using Chrome or Int. Explorer (or perhaps Opera, or something else)??? And I assume this is only happening with my blog, not any others you visit...
...let's just say, I don't think I'd be spending any $$$, let alone $76, on that volume!
I am using Internet Explorer.
Will the text be....rediscovered?
And no problems with Safari which I use as a "clean" browser (usually resetting it and dumping all the cookies after each session) to visit sites that might stick excess unwanted junk into my system...
I just checked, though, and I don't get the images from the thumbnails over on the IBWO forum on Firefox... But I just tried it on Safari, and there they were... Probably something in my Firefox prefences; they send me a lot more security "updates" than Safari/Apple does....
Thanks Microsoft for ruining my New Year's weekend! :-[
