My ''I wonder...'' question is:
Why do I wonder this?
I also wonder this because once I asked someone the question ''What is the most endangered animal in the world?'', and they answered to me that is was the panda. So did more people say when I asked. Other people told me that is was the tiger, bees, elephants or even the orangutan.
Actually, it is a type of bird that not many people know of. So I might want to be an "ornithologist*" in the future.

Which animal is the most endangered animal species in the world?
What are the characteristics of the Ivory-billed woodpecker?
Where does it live now?
In my opinion, I think that the Ivory-billed woodpecker's population shrank during the time of the Civil War is because during a war, they fire guns, and the birds have to fly. So maybe when the Ivory-billed woodpeckers were flying, they got shot. So not many of them survived the trip.
What does the Ivory-billed woodpecker eat and how?
