    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    BM how come u have absolved yourself from getting the clear picture? Many people say what you have said. What are you going to do after you see someone elses clear picture ? thanks

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    Changes in flush distances and wariness due to predation (hunting in the IB case) have hundreds of articles/examples in the peer-reviewed literature. The N clade of Camphephilus has suffered human predation. The IB suffered intensely, see Noel Synder monogram on IB. An alternative...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    Anthropomorphic DKs (ADKs ADKs ADKs) were used in the US from the Civil War at least until post US/World depression by subsistence hunters down S during hard times. Starvation was real in the S. Birds would either come closer to the source or give their ~ location up, the hunter would do what...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    Someone please tell this "expert" :rolleyes:that the confusing species is the White -breasted Nuthatch not the Red-breasted as he states . The Red-breasted nuthatch is not even a sympatric breeder with the IB even if it sounded like it !! Its understandable his knowledge of IB is limited but...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    Patudo, Much has happened in the last few and 8 decades. Best to get away from the old acre to modern acre comparison as far as total acres involved. Todays forests have greatly changed for the worse in many ways; I will not cover much here. Ecological changes and fire regimes need to be...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    Henning there were no or very very few DKs misidentified: Again: PIWO cannot fly as seen in all the pertinent videos of IB; its impossible. THERE ARE NO PIWO VIDEOS OF THE SEVERAL THOUSAND that match the subject IB videos. In the AR video before the flight sequence there is a 20 inch tall...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    Zander talk about classical avoidance behavior to try and lessen your beating----- you are a poster boy. But you are only drawing blaring attention to the scientific holes in the skeptical stance, and you force me to say this........your immature, personality quirks. Collins was talking about...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    On Cuba, conversed with the recent CU searchers that went there. They covered too little ground because logistics and problems devoured time. They did not survey much ground; that study accomplished very little as far as the question of presence absence in East Cuba. This is a different...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    Hello Raymie.....did you read my prior posts and in between the lines? There are few positive sighting recently due to less search effort and the bird's already small population could be dropping. But there are millions of acres of acceptable habitat, But in areas like LA much of the land is...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    Hello BM, the latest sighting is only a few months old and was visual but was by a layman/beginner and written up with an emphasis on what a PIWO looks like w/o much on what was actually seen. On a scale of 1 to 10 on habitat, location, likelihood of being true, veracity of report I would go 4...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    . Too funny. In a prior post I asked if you had any circa 2005 notes or posts that doubted the IB Persists paper. I suspected you had no written comments/notes/posts and are a casual follower at best of the actual evidence and its meaning. I believe you accepted the sighting and...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    You haven't thought very hard before pressing 'post', I hope. Perhaps "you being sure" of extinction like thousands preceding you selling truth serum is a bit premature. Caution is is in order after evidence came soon after the words "its gone" were firmly proclaimed. As their asses sank...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    The video, sound recordings, field notes, re-creations of sighting with models etc. supporting the AR sighting are very solid to support the modest abstract that one IB remained. The several authors had good to extensive knowledge of the confusing species (field marks and sounds). In addition...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    We now return to the lives of the privledged and underread >>>(should be easy enough to get one) piciture<<< . A.T. Wayne noticed a substantial increase in flush distance after just one season of intense shooting around California Swamp. Take of birds dropped substantially even though they...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    video artifacts In the two LA videos, on different days, artifacts may influence key, some or most frames. The FL quality is so bad that you are more or less going by flight pattern (how it is unusual and does match literature) and the double knock heard in the earlier video from kayak. Also...

    Ivory-billed Woodpecker: Debunking the Critics

    Ibwo I know Collin's evidence contemporaneously as it was gathered. Also friend knows him well. He has made mistakes and continues to on various levels but probably not on his final conclusions of recent presence/absence of IB. He did amass evidence of one and two IBWOs on a few separate...
