Texas search for ivory-bills

The Beaumont Enterprise interviewed John Arvin, research coordinator of the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory, about his upcoming search efforts in southeast Texas.

In Southeast Texas, a team of three people will look for the bird next winter and in the spring of 2007, when trees have lost their leaves. The search is funded by a $100,000 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service grant awarded to the bird observatory.

Arvin has already been approached by several people who want to be on the search team, but he has not made selections.
