The lack of clear images of ivory-bills does in fact concern me. Many of the incongruities between these extant ivory-bills and historical accounts concern me. I do not dismiss any of these things, nor am I a "believer," as some have tried to label me.

Nor is contorting and distorting evidence almost beyond recognition so that it will fit your hypothesis. I consider myself a genuine skeptic, not a "Skeptic."
