Woodpecker in the mist

Posted By on Sun, Oct 12, 2008 at 7:49 AM

KUAR's Ron Breeding reports that the search for the ivory-billed woodpecker in Arkansas's big woods is winding down. After four years, the Cornell Ornithology Lab is giving up its staffed search. None of its people will be in Arkansas this winter. Local agencies will continue to put a few people in the woods for the search this winter, though this may be the last year for those, unless an indisputable photograph of the bird, thought extinct until recent sightings, is obtained.
