A new pre-publication paper, available online now, presents new evidence regarding the presence of Ivory-billed Woodpeckers in Louisiana. In October 2021, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed to remove the Ivory-billed Woodpecker from the Endangered Species List and declare the iconic woodpecker species extinct. In January, the USFWS held a public hearing on the proposal; a recording of that hearing is available here. That proposal has not yet been finalized. In the new unpublished manuscript, which has not yet undergone peer review, several researchers present the evidence generated by years of searching for the bird, including photos and drone videos. Read the paper and examine the photos and videos here.
