The photos are before the addition of the TDSZ2.
Thanks, Itchy, images of a TSDZ2 on such a bike will be a good visual addition to what we know of applications of the TSDZ2.
Since you speak of the Ivory Billed Woodpecker, I think I'm still the last known person with a sighting. It was during a canoe outing back in about 1973 or so when I was out in the Atchafalaya river basin in Louisiana with four Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries agents and a few helpers like me, who were trying to collect data to help prosecute polluters in the area. I spotted it as we rounded a bend, and I called out to the group that there was a really big woodpecker near the top of a long-dead tree, but it soon flew off. Others saw it too, but in flight away from us, yet all agreed it was a huge animal, easily larger than the juvenile bald eagles hanging out in a near by cypress. I picked it out in the Peterson guide, and at first one of the agents scoffed, but when the others said that when you consider the size, distance to us, and so forth, that was the only specie that fit the bill!
Nice to hear someone else remembers this venerable animal humans have likely brought to extinction.
