    Yes, yes. Although my perception is a bit different. Many birds only need physical structure to be succesful (adequate food, forest, roosts, etc.) The idea that 'bills are pine or riparian forest obligates seems way off. The SE coastal plain landscape was and is now in only several million...

    Like to put some granularity on pair carrying capacity related to survival, some areas of such superior quality are likely reproducing above replacement rate. So there is a sink and source dynamic. Habitat carrying capacity ranking will likely produce a list or areas fitting into cohorts of...

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ XXXXXXOXXXIXXXDXXXIXX YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY I will go on for others only since its related to evidence review and this poster is not into evidence . The ivory-billed has a unique NA USA physiology and niche. The post senescent age of dead trees is pivotal for accurate review of...

    That's many pages, but excellent and key question. Surely this is not the right forum so hesitant to go into that in this predominantly unhelpful atmosphere.

    Sang, its been answered in various parts of the thread a few times. Your premise needs to be adjusted. There are 7.5 million acres of habitat, this mentioned many times . Adding acres is not the problem especially with such a low population NOT AT CARRYING CAPACITY on a simple per acre...

    Like the humour! If I stormed the BF Capital (is there such a thing?) with a an Ivory-bill Lives banner dressed in a ghillie suit would I be charged with insuurection ? or just simple assault on all of your senses?

    No more on only your desired subject until you realize and fulfill reciprocity per an hour ago. And why have you been scientifically mute for months when many others here have flailed the value of field notes? I sense shifting sands.

    I agree with most of what you say. My sketches are already in. Why would I hold them back, they lose value every day. But I do have much unpublished survey work but some of XXXXXX focus was defined and narrow with a pre-approved plan and ES permits for XXXX. XXXXX work led others to...

    I have written Gotelli with concerns years go. But it's all funny-------Two groups of scientists studying museum specimens and sightings of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker have reached the same disappointing conclusion: Never saw him in the field and he admitted he never was. We will just be kind...

    Contemporaneously prepared field notes are crtitical, the second the chase if over in the field. meaning when you have defintley lost the immediate trail you better be writing, sketching .

    You missed this above. Are you satisfied we know that topic? If not will you be providing a granular and specific point by point rebuttal? Are you satisfied or not that researchers know their working sign and do not confuse. And again like you to discuss Picidae sign for multiple reasons...

    No one said that. But can be looked at. See this as another poor attempt to rectify a long ago destroyed, baseless belief that skittishness does not have a say.

    Never mentioned the word question. I said I had not seen your answer to those posts meaning a discussion of 569 and 587. Field notes are a worthy subject; would like to discuss after 569 and 587 is discussed. ; they have not been addressed sufficiently or at all. If your willing.Ad Never...

    The allusion to the models used in the re-enactment as “flat-winged” is incorrect. There seems to be a widespread misconception that the models simply flapped up and down with no flexion or twisting motion. The models in fact flexed and were designed to reproduce the twisting motion that is...

    The Collinson paper has major fatal flaws that inverses it conclusion. 1) did not use the correct comparative interlacing negating the results 2) relied on erroneous and incomplete pileated flight data from Nolin 2a) ignored Nolin Pi wing beat Hz was lowing unlike the Luneau bird 3) used "data"...

    Collinson, like him reasonable attitude. I believe he has softened his position against the 'bill. His paper never put a dent in the pertinent evidence for several obvious reasons. The paper provides no serious challenge to the "its extant" side. You did not answer some of my responses to...

    No serious searcher in the US mistakes these feeding pits for cavity holes. Has this been addressed as a large wrong turn?
