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.

-- Replay --


For any who may be interested, someone named John Deamond has pieced together this video of various IBWO-related clips (there seems to be no accompanying audio). The first minute-or-so are some very quick clips, mostly zoomed, that have made claims of showing IBWOs (some from YouTube, some from Mike Collins, 1 from Geoff Hill's group). The next 11 minutes are various replayings of the Luneau clip from Arkansas, and the last minute is some superfluous animation:

I don't find anything distinctly helpful or new here, but pass it along in the event others may wish to play with it. Also, don't know any particulars about John's project beyond his own statement that it is "...about extinct birds and how the events surrounding and following their demise reflect issues with how we deal with the natural environment."

Hah, this is great. I made this video for a grad school project (Parsons MFA in Photography and Related Media). It's not a finished piece by any means, and was presented as part of an installation with two other time-based pieces and a few other things. I'm currently working on a project called "A Field Guide to the Extinct and Extirpated Birds of North America." The main part is going to be a book that explores the fate of the birds in question and what this reveals about our values regarding the natural world.

Oh, and I'm counting the ivory bill among the extinct species. Sorry guys!
