Red-cockaded Woodpecker

Dryobates borealis

Description:

My first time seeing the species in the wild. There were at least a couple in the area, if not more based on the calls.

Habitat:

Seen on some mature pine trees. They are endangered because their habitat is shrinking and they have a very specific nesting habit of choosing live pines infected with red heart fungus to make cavities (softens the wood). Location on map has been moved
