This chapter describes the rapid decline of Ivory-billed Woodpeckers to apparent extinction in the last decades of the 19th and first decades of the 20th centuries. The discovery of a remnant population of ivorybills in the Singer Tract in Louisiana in 1932 is described, and James Tanner is introduced as the ornithologist who conducted the only detailed study of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker. The chapter ends with the 2005 announcement of the discovery of an Ivory-billed Woodpecker in Arkansas.
