      The following news release from Cornell University Press Office is provided for your
      information.

      Search for ivory-billed woodpecker featured Sunday on '60 Minutes'

      ITHACA, N.Y. - Last spring's news of the rediscovery of the ivory-billed woodpecker -
      unseen for six decades - stunned birders, scientists, conservationists and everyday people
      around the world. Now the news of the rediscovery effort, led by the Cornell Laboratory of
      Ornithology, will be featured on CBS News' "60 Minutes" this Sunday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m.
      EDT.

      The segment was videotaped on location in the Arkansas bayou (where the ivory-bill has
      been sighted) and in the Acoustic Analysis Lab at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca.
      The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the leading scientific and research organization in the
      search for the ivory-billed woodpecker, has partnered with The Nature Conservancy, the
      nation's leading land-conservation group, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the Big
      Woods Conservation Partnership to conserve the habitat for this magnificent bird and
      other wildlife in the region.

      The 60-Minute film crew also attended ABA's 2005 Tucson Convention interacting with
      attendees and filming several of the activities and events. We are uncertain what portions
      if any of that filming will be included in this upcoming segment.
