Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Evidence

Photograph of A MODEL (NOT THE LIVE BIRD*) of an adult male published by Science magazine (right, arrow). This model was used for video comparisons (There are more linked pictures in my blog entries below, for comparison).

Video clip of an Ivory-billed Woodpecker flying through the trees away from a man in a boat (you also get a great view of his left hand and knees). If that link is too clogged up to download, you can try this link instead.You need Quicktime to view this video.

The abstract from the Science article.

A supplement to Science magazine.

Long Thought Extinct, Ivory-billed Woodpecker Rediscovered In Big Woods Of Arkansas [ScienceDaily News]

* many thanks to a colleague of mine, R. Moyle, for pointing out that this bird is a model used for video comparison purposes and is not the real thing. Incidentally, all the news services have this WRONG, and list this as a photo of the live bird.

We just posted on our blog about this, but instead of repeating all of the comprehensive information you have, we just linked to you!
The video is great-- exactly the way you'd expect to see this exciting discovery-- fleeting and thrilling.
