Ivory-billed Woodpecker - Podcast Discussion

Originally posted 10/15/10 - backdated to organize posts by topic.

Mark Bonta of Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi delivers very interesting commentary on the continuing search for the Ivory-billed Woodpecker along with the Delta blues in a new podcast discussion.  Ivorybill comments begin just after 14 minutes into this podcast:

Geography of the Delta Blues and the Ivory-billed Woodpecker 

I was pleased to discover this illustration, new to me, amid an extensive collection of antique bird illustrations and bird photos.  The collection is available in a web album belonging to Avigraphicon at this link:
 
Avigraphicon's Public Gallery

Avigraphicon provides these notes on the book that this plate belongs to:

Captain Thomas Brown's illustrations following Alexander Wilson and Lucien Bonaparte's seminal text, originally published in the three-volume Jameson edition of the American Ornithology. These plates are from the later "Illustrations" volumes published between 1831 and 1835... Brown expanded the works of Wilson and Bonaparte to include 161 additional birds, and enlarged the illustrations of 87 others.
