Nature Walk: Red-Headed Woodpecker
“The abundance of woodpeckers such as the red-headed directly relates to available habitat and food supply. Their numbers may increase after storms cause widespread tree damage or from diseases such as Dutch elm disease, which killed American elms in the ’60s and ’70s. Leaving occasional dead trees gives them future nest sites.” — Carl Kurtz
