Resource Description
THE GRAIL BIRD. Gallagher. The ivory-billed woodpecker has been sought for decades by those trying to determine whether this remarkable species still even exists - most of the scientific world had believed that the ivory-billed woodpecker was extinct. An irrefutable sighting by Gallagher and a colleague in February 2004 quickly led to the largest search ever mounted to find a rare bird, as researchers fanned out across the bayou to document this most iconic of birds. We have lost most of the vast old-growth forests of the South, and nothing symbolizes that loss more than the demise of the ivory-billed woodpecker. But the rediscovery of the bird symbolizes hope for these increasingly rare habitats, which with time and effort can be partially restored. We have been given one final chance to get it right, to save this bird and the bottomland swamp forests it needs to survive. #BIRD-14395, hardcover.
