Default Ivory-bill resources             Go to Top

The following is an updated compilation of links containing media depicting known or putative ivory-billed woodpeckers and their sounds. No attempt has been made to list every link containing such materials. Where there is duplication we have tried to present the best quality version of an item we could find. Some individual links have multiple media types and are repeated accordingly. The inclusion of a link here should not be taken as an endorsement of any conclusions contained therein. We have merely tried to be thorough and inclusive.

A word of caution: Some links require major computer resources and/or very fast connections. They may crash your computer or your browser.

We have added a second post consisting of a list of books containing information on ivory-bills, this is of course not exhaustive but we have tried to include works that we consider vital. These are also listed in the publications thread.

We will try to keep these posts as current as possible and fully expect that new materials will be added. We are keeping this thread closed so as to keep it as clean and tightly organized as possible for the benefit of our members. If you have suggested links or would like to report dead links, PM Dave (fangsheath) or Don (donaldgkimball). We hope you find this resource of value. Enjoy!
