Here is some more information on the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker from the Lab of 
Shane Adams
East of Hamblen County
Morristown, TN.37813

Greetings Lab members and friends,
We'd like to share with you another update from our Ivory-billed Woodpecker 
search team in Arkansas. The search is well underway, with a full-time crew now 
joined by the first group of volunteers this field season. To learn what 
they've been up to, read our Ivory-bill Bulletin. You can meet the crew and 
find out what an interesting and dedicated group they are. Join field 
technician Sarah Warner of Michigan in the swamp via her personal journal.
Today and tomorrow, more than a dozen journalists are joining the search team 
in the swamps at the invitation of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the 
Cornell Lab of Ornithology, The Nature Conservancy, Arkansas Game & Fish 
Commission, and Arkansas Audubon. They'll get a first-hand view of life as an 
ivory-bill searcher, will receive detailed information about search strategies 
and technology, and will learn more about efforts to conserve the ivory-bill's 
habitat. Keep an eye on the news or check our web site for the latest 
ivory-bill articles.
We'll keep you posted as the search develops!
The holidays are coming up, and if you're looking for gifts, we hope you'll
