There is a woodpecker that was listed as extinct in the 1930's. This is the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker. Periodically, evidence emerges that provides a glimmer of hope that a small population still exists, however the sightings are fleeting and concrete proof of the individual's identity is not confirmed beyond reasonable doubt. When it seemed inevitable that the bird faced extinction, naturalists of the day, meticulously documented their habits, and habitat, but technology limited their ability to get good images and audio of this spectacular bird. Unfortunately, in the early days of conservation, you learned more about your subject by shooting one to examine it more closely. A few specimens still survive today, embalmed and preserved in drawers of ornithology labs today, but in our travels about, we hope to find a living bird. If we do find an Ivory-Billed Woodpecker, this bird will be a fifth or sixth generation descendent to survive beyond their documented extinction. This was a great weekend of camaraderie, exploration, and discovery. I hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed the trip.
