The Ivory-billed woodpecker is the world's third largest woodpecker. It lives in the southeastern United States, an environment filled with large trees, using its white bill to forage for beetle larvae hidden under bark. Unfortunately, its strong connection with its ecosystem has left its population vulnerable. Because of the consistent destruction loggers have wreaked on its habitat, the woodpecker may already be extinct.
The distressed details on the high-wear areas of the hat reflect the destruction of the woodpecker’s habitat. And our embroidered depiction of the bird underscores its simple plumage, while also conveying the aesthetic beauty produced from a bare contrast of basic colors. The “critically endangered” status of the ivory-billed woodpecker should serve to remind us not only of the beauty of our natural world but its fragility as well.
