Ivory-bills in Florida?

I'm off to Florida to visit my Dad again for the next several days. I'll have my laptop handy (and my digital camera), but I don't know if I'll have a chance to blog. If I do you'll see an update here.

This trip is my last chance to pick up some warm weather birds for 2005, and to study Ivory-bills. Well, not Ivory-bills directly, but their cousins, the Pileateds. My Dad gets them around his yard every so often, and if I get a chance to see them I'll be looking very closely at their flying gait and color flashes.

I've seen Pileated many times before, but I admit I've not paid enough attention to details like this. It's all part of my effort to "look at every bird".
