Photo of an Ivory-billed Woodpecker taken during our visit in 2006. It's near the bridge over Bayou De View, the place where Tim Gallagher and Bobbi Harrison reported seeing an Ivory-billed Woodpecker in Feb. 2004.
There's a recent article from the Boston Globe on the continuing search for the Ivory-billed Woodpecker, here.
Ivorybills had been thought extinct since the 1940's. A Cornell University team reported finding an Ivory-billed Woodpecker in the Cache and White Rivers, near Brinkley, AR in 2004. Geoff Hill and an Auburn Univ. team reported seeing Ivory-billed Woodpeckers in the Choctawhatchee River in the panhandle of FL in 2005. No one has yet gotten a clear, definitive photo of an Ivory-billed Woodpecker. There has been despite intensive searching during the past several years including helicopter searches of the Cache and White Rivers happening now. The controversey as to whether the Ivory-billed Woodpecker exists, continues.
