The Ivory-billed woodpecker has been a source of wonder, obsessive interest, and controversy for nearly a century. While the last universally accepted sighting was in 1944, there have been over 150 since then – perhaps most notoriously, the fiercely contested reports from Arkansas, published by Cornell in Science in 2005. Yorktown resident Mark A. Michaels has been searching for the Ivory-bill since 2007, mostly in parts of Louisiana that were overlooked during the organized searches that followed the “rediscovery”. Mark will discuss his search, his adventures in Louisiana and the history of Ivory-bill reports from the 1930s to the present. Visit www.projectcoyoteibwo.com for more information. Adults Only.
