Cornell University ornithologist Tim Gallagher talks with Nelda Hinckley, a local birder and biology professor at John A. Logan College, about his hunt for the elusive ivory-billed woodpecker. Gallagher discusses his team’s research and recounts the thrill of the 2004 sighting of the bird (in the Arkansas bayou), which was once thought to be extinct. Gallagher is the editor of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s award-winning quarterly, Living Bird, and recently published the book The Grail Bird: Hot on the Trail of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker.
