Ivory Billed Woodpecker's are alive and well in Boiling Spring Lakes, NC. People who purchased lot's 30 years ago and now wanting to build their retirement homes are not able too now because of this bird which is ok with me. Perhaps doing a search for BSL and the woodpecker will shed more light on the current status.
Also in BSL there is an off limit area due to the Venus Fly Trap. There is a narrow corridor where this plant grows and no where else. Very interesting for this one area that we find the IBW and the Venus Fly Trap.
It's red-cockaded woodpeckers that occur at Boiling Springs in NC, not ivory-billed: http://www.fws.gov/raleigh/bsl.html
