. . . . then . . . 

Mystery Bird maintains its elusiveness.

Dr. Geoffry Hill

 of Auburn University

After two long seasons of field study,

has called a wrap to this year's work. He reports on his scientific effort to locate the bird that many thought had been extinct for over 40 years.

The Ivory-billed woodpecker is a most elusive and magnificent bird.

Brian Rolek


Next we talk  with Dr. Hill's graduate student,

who just completed his second long stretch camping and searching for the Ivory-billed. He provides a wonderful insight on what is involved in doing long-term field research, reveals many of the techniques used, and where he plans to go next on this journey.

Join us for a timely and insightful journey into the heart  of this significant research project.
