Audubon Ivory-Billed Woodpeckers - Vintage Bird Print
John James Audubon created amazing lithographs of American birds, and this Ivory-billed woodpecker is among the best Audubon lithographs made by Audubon. This Ivory-billed woodpecker is possibly extinct -- it was a black and white bird, and the male has an amazing red crest on the back and rear. The Audobon ivory-billed woodpeckers are sitting on a dead tree branch, and the male woodpecker is very interested in a little black bug that's climbing up the tree.
About the Vintage Audubon Ivory-billed woodpecker Lithograph
This is a reproduction of Ivory-billed woodpeckers, a fine John James Audubon lithograph from Birds of America, Plate 66. The Ivory-billed woodpecker print was originally printed between 1827-1838. They are, or possibly were, strikingly beautiful birds, among the largest woodpeckers in the world.
Critically Endangered Woodpeckers -- Probably Extinct Woodpeckers
The ivory-billed woodpeckers are thought to be extinct. The problem is, they are native to virgin forests of the southeastern United States -- places that are hard to get into, and therefore, hard to determine whether there are any left because the ivory-billed woodpeckers habitat is in remote swampland. There have been possible sightings as late as 2005 in Arkansas and in Florida by ornithologists, but the sightings of an Ivory-Billed Woodpecker in these areas were never confirmed.
