ABA Punts on IBWO Decision

As reported here, the American Birding Association’s Checklist Committee has decided to postpone an evaluation of recent observations of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker in Arkansas. This is an apparent effort "To avoid further polarization among the ABA membership." While this stance may not be courageous, it is certainly prudent. There's no sense rushing to judgement on this, as more definitive evidence may yet come to light (though I do have to admit to being skeptical).
