Whither the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker?

An article from the NY Times (free registration may be required) explores how the initial burst of interest (and commerce) in the Big Woods section of Arkansas which erupted in 2005 when an ivory-bill was apparently videotaped is flagging now that scientists have been unable to get stronger evidence the iconic bird is still alive.

Thanks to Chad Arment for bringing this to my attention.
