Long thought extinct, the elusive Ivory-billed Woodpecker was rediscovery in a remote region of Arkansas. This book is a fascinating and comprehensive study of the remarkable bird. It was originally published by the National Audubon Society in 1942 when the Ivory-bill's survival was in danger and only few of the species could still be found in the southern United States. It opens with a general description (explaining how to distinguish the Ivory-bill from its more commonly encountered cousin, the Pileated Woodpecker), and offers an extensive profile of the species' other characteristics and habits, including its original distribution patterns, the history of its disappearance, and its feeding, nesting, and breeding habits.
