    HMNS Special Film Screening:  Ghost Bird

    The Houston Museum of Natural Science presents an HMNS Special  Film Screening:  Ghost Bird, the movie telling the tale of the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker. Thursday, August 19 at 6pm.

    The ivory-billed woodpecker has long been considered the Holy Grail by diehard birders who refused to believe it went extinct over sixty years ago. So when scientists announced that the bird had been found in the swamps of eastern Arkansas, the event was celebrated around the world as the rediscovery of a lifetime.

    Following the largest recovery effort ever undertaken for a lost species, and despite millions of dollars in funding, ivory-bills remain as elusive as ever. What can explain the mysterious absence of evidence while sightings by expert birders persist?

    Ghost Bird brings the ivory-bill’s blurry rediscovery into focus revealing our uneasy relationship with nature and the increasing uncertainty of our place within it.
