Ok, I completely understand that the evidence used to favor that the Ivory-billed Woodpecker does exist isn't very concrete although the evidence isn't concrete to prove that the bird doesn't exist. Either way no one side seems to be stronger than the other. I don't think either side can truly say that it does or doesn't exits. The Debate will continue until an Ivory-Billed woodpecker lands on a researchers head while a video camera is rolling!!!!:) After reading the evidence it seems that some articles and opinions are just there to try to prove the other side wrong. Is every piece of evidence really trying to prove it does or doesn't exists, or just trying to prove that others are wrong and they are right!?
