    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: takeoffs with deep and rapid flaps + wing noises

    Bottom line, most of us here admire the tenacity of those involved and I personally will eat my lucky undepants when you guys get, as surely ou must, a definitive, frame filling shot of an IBWP.

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: takeoffs with deep and rapid flaps + wing noises

    Difficulty in reaching the habitat could be a huge factor, if nobody is getting right to where they are, they won't be found. I don't know when the last time anyone saw Congo Peafowl was but nobody has said they are extinct.

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: takeoffs with deep and rapid flaps + wing noises

    I admire you 'stickablilty' and drive and the bird is possibly still extant but If this was a legal case, it wouldn't even get to court. It's all supposition and people interpreting what they see, to fit their own agenda.
