Ivory-billed Woodpecker, Streaming Video!
Here is a link to a wonderful streaming news report about the ivory-billed woodpecker sighting from the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. It contains interviews with several of the team members and shows video footage from 1930 as well as the new video footage of the ivory-billed woodpecker. You need quicktime to view this report (link to free download provided).
I cannot view this video clip because I use a Mac computer. However, a friend tells me this video clip of the ivory-billed woodpecker is very good. It is hosted by National Geographic News and requires Windows Media Player to view.
The significance of the ivory-billed woodpecker, as reported by National Public Radio. This is from yesterday's Morning Edition show.
The Earth Observatory has a satellite photo from NASA’s Landsat 7 satellite of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker Habitat and a story that are very interesting.
This is a nice species account about the Ivory-billed Woodpecker by Jerome Jackson, woodpecker expert and author of the book, In Search of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker.
Links to two of John Tanner's 1935 black-and-white photographs of the ivory-billed woodpecker, published by Dover Publications. This link also includes two drawings that you will find very interesting. The first drawing shows the differences between ivory-billed woodpeckers and pileated woodpeckers, which amateur birders sometimes confuse as ivory-billed woodpeckers. The second drawing is a lovely and detailed map of the historic range of these birds, documenting the decline of their populations over the decades.
