Remember, it was the leak of the IBWO's existence by someone in the 
Bush Administration that forced the Cornell Lab to make the 
announcement before it had all of its ducks (sic) in a row. It was 
quite predictable that there was skepticism. Incidentally, the 
original IBWO recordings were made by Cornell ornithologists Paul 
Kellogg, Arthur Allen, George Sutton and Jim Tanner in Louisiana. 
There is a lot more information on the Cornell Lab web site that can 
be reached easily by googling Ivory-Billed Woodpecker.
