Googling the Ivory-billed Woodpecker #1: Introduction

What is being discussed online about the Ivory-billed Woodpecker, and what topics or key words are being mentioned most frequently? The "popularity" of a particular topic or key word can be evaluated only by comparison with the results obtained for other key word searches.

In this series of posts, I first look at variability in the number of results obtained for 9 different name variants of Ivory-billed Woodpecker. In subsequent posts, I report the results obtained for searches of 198 different key words in combination with Ivory bill. The number of results obtained for any particular key word search is not static, but can vary slightly from hour to hour. The results reported here were obtained on 02/04/07. The 198 key word searches are divided into the 12 categories listed below:
Agencies & Organizations
