Ivory-Billed Woodpecker - Ford Times Silkscreen Print

Out of stock

A hermit by temperament and largest of our Woodpeckers, the Ivory-billed dines on woodborers beneath the bark of deceased and dying trees in southern cypress swamps. Indians treasured his bills as amulets and sought to attain his courage vicariously by collecting them in quantity. White men furthered his demise by shooting him for food. But the lumbermen made the Ivory-Bill's extinction highly probable by felling the ancient forests, thus destroying his privacy and his pantry.
