If it was thought to be extinct,where was it hiding at for the last 60 years? It makes one wonder if others that are thought to be extinct as to if they are in hiding.

They'll probably get a rash of bumper stickers on red-neck trucks down in Arkansas that read "Tastes Like Ivory Bill" and some hillbilly banjo type will write a song about "wipin' yer butt with an Ivory Bill." Just wait! :eek:

Darn that evil Bush Administration ;)

Bush must be a better environmentalist than we first thought - how many birds came back from extinction under clinton? (no 'dodo bird' or flipping the 'bird' jokes please)


"ivory bill... tastes like chicken"
:rofl:

So twont hurt when I wipe with an Ivory Bill!" :p

Jimbo, got me some red-neck roots :rofl:

I can't believe President Bush didn't go in with his Springer Spaniel and shotgun and shoot all of those Ivory Bills, have the CIA steal the video and open up the forest to his buddies for clear cutting. :confused:

And to immediately release 10 million dollars to help in Ivory Bill recovery; he's slipping!



Ivory Bill: the OTHER white meat.

"Today we are commiting to a multiagency, multimillion-dollar, multiyear program to provide hope for this bird's continued survival," Interior Secretary Gale Norton announced at a news conference.​

Something tells me that bird was better left undiscovered.

Roughly a year ago, I listened to a "radio expedition" where this same ornithologist featured in this article from Cornell had taken recordings made 60 years ago of the ivory bill deep into the forest to play and hopefully, interact with one of these birds. After 2-3 weeks of investigation, the only hope he'd had was that he thought he'd heard a deep "thumping" sound that would have been similar to an ivory billed woodpecker. Glad to hear that his enthusiam has paid off.

Trevor, that raises an interesting question. You can't use most "endangered" species feathers. But, since it was classified as "extinct", can you still use the feathers until they are labled "endangered"???? Hmmmmmmm.
