The miraculous rediscovery of the ivory-billed woodpecker was announced in 2005, but conclusive evidence the bird’s existence has proven elusive. Presenting a skeptic’s viewpoint, GHOST BIRD examines the search for the woodpecker, the seductive power of hope, and the politics of our uneasy relationship with nature. Join us for a discussion of the evidence on both sides of the ivory-bill debate with University of Utah ornithologist Dr. Dale Clayton.
