I found a nice article that delves into some of the historical records related to the behavior of the IBWO, specifically the level of wariness that the bird exhibited. I am trying to keep an open mind and I don't want to influence the poll voting in any way, but I will present info as I find it. Personally I find this topic extremely interesting. Being somewhat of a romantic I would like to believe that the IBWO is still around. Thanks to all the folks commenting on this riveting topic. Don't forget to vote on the poll.
