KUAR's Ron Breeding reports
that the search for the ivory-billed woodpecker
in Arkansas's big woods is winding down. After four years, the Cornell Ornithology Lab
is giving up its staffed search. None of its people will be in Arkansas this winter. Local agencies will continue to put a few people in the woods for the search this winter, though this may be the last year for those, unless an indisputable photograph of the bird, thought extinct until recent sightings, is obtained.
