Forget the grad students, hire some professional photographers!

I'm reminded of the joke where you take a man and present him with someone he intensely desires, and tell him that every hour he will be able to traverse half of the remaining distance to the object of his desire. If he is a mathematician he will become terribly frustrated, knowing he will never actually reach his goal. If he is an engineer he will be very excited, knowing that he will eventually get close enough for practical purposes.

As most of my regular readers (all three of you) probably already know, a new update from the Choctawhatchee Ivorybill team has been posted.

It includes another sighting by Tyler Hicks, this time of a perched female 40 feet away. Yet, still, no photo because of problems with the autofocus. Depending on what sort of person you are, you might find this sighting either very exciting or terribly frustrating. Once again: Half the distance to the goal line, but no slam dunk (wow, can I mix my metaphors, or what?).

Thanks for the tip on this development.
