So, I stumbled onto another site offering Ivory-billed Woodpecker tours: http://canoeman.com/CRGS/docs/birdwatching.html At least he's quite a bit cheaper than the Mallard Pointe tours.
I am sure that more of these operators will be popping up on the web as we get closer to fall. I have heard that Wildlife Farms will also be offering tours this year, but there is nothing on their web site about woodpecker tours yet. We would be very interested in hearing from anyone who takes any of the IBWO tours being offered in Arkansas this fall. Anyone who has hired a birding guide before knows that it is kinda hit-and-miss, so it would be nice to be able to "rate" the tours and guides in Arkansas.
