ghostly evening

Ghost bird appears at Ijams Nature Center!

The highly acclaimed documentary Ghost Bird will be shown at Ijams Nature Center on Saturday, February 12 at 4 p.m.

Filmmaker Scott Crocker has turned the saga of the ivory-billed woodpecker into witty, wistful story that is fascinating to practically everyone. It’s been called a “cosmic lament for the forest primeval and man’s search for environmental redemption.

Is the Ghost Bird extinct or not? That is the question that remains unanswered.

I will also on hand with Nancy Tanner selling and signing copies of our book “Ghost Birds: Jim Tanner and the Quest for the Ivory-bill.”

I'll briefly discuss the differences between our book Ghost Birds (plural) and the film Ghost Bird (singular), similar names but each represent a different part of the ivory-bill story.

Admission for the movie is $5, but seating is limited, to reserve a chair (white with blue cushion) call 577-4717, ext. 10.
