Synopsis
The ivory-billed woodpecker has long been considered the Holy Grail by diehard birders who refused to believe it went extinct over sixty years ago. When scientists announced that the bird had been found in the swamps of Eastern Arkansas, the nation's 70 million birders celebrated the woodpecker's second coming. Following the largest recovery effort ever undertaken for a lost species, and despite millions of dollars in funding, ivory-bills remain as elusive as ever. Here, the ivory-bill's rediscovery is brought into focus, revealing our uneasy relationship with nature and the increasing uncertainty of our place within it.
