Well, it had to happen sooner or later. An outfit just started a new web site for tours to see the Ivory-billed Woodpecker in Arkansas. Check out the prices: www.ivorybilledexpeditions.com the cheapest option is $325.00 per person!!!!!!
Oh yeah, you can also buy *deluxe* packages for $1300 or $2300. For that price, Gene Sparling will be your guide!
Now we know why access into the best areas has been restricted...not to save habitat, but so that the local Razorbacks can make some money!
There is quite a bit on the IBWO in the latest edition of North American Birds, and I think that some of the information in that issue will create a firestorm of controversy...at least, it will here at BINAC.
