Bryan Pfeiffer will be presenting his talk on the Ivory-billed Woodpecker at
the Birds of Vermont Museum this Friday, July 7th.
It has become one of the great mysteries in all of bird watching. Did the
Ivory-billed Woodpecker actually cheat extinction? Was it recently
discovered in the remote bottomland swamps of Arkansas? Or is the fuzzy
video of a large black and white woodpecker nothing more than the common
Pileated Woodpecker? Vermont naturalist and noted author Bryan Pfeiffer went
to Arkansas to see for himself. Undaunted by prospects of venomous snakes,
waist-deep muck and clouds of mosquitoes, Bryan and a team of Vermont
biologists spent two weeks searching the Arkansas swamps for Ivory bills.
You'll see what they found during Bryan's engaging slide lecture on Friday,
July 7th. Preceding the lecture, enjoy wine and cheese with Bryan and Bob
Spear, founder of the Birds of Vermont Museum.
6:30 - 7:00 Wine and Cheese
