This chapter introduces the three explorers who first went searching for ivorybills in the Florida Panhandle. Tyler Hicks was a young field technician with great birding skills. Brian Rolek was another technician, less skilled as a birder but very enthusiastic about seeing new places and new birds. The author, Geoff Hill, was a professor at Auburn University. They set off on a weekend kayak trip on the Pea River in South Alabama. On a whim, they moved to the Choctawhatchee River on the second day and encountered an Ivory-billed Woodpecker.
