The 1996 Management Guidelines for the Red-cockaded Woodpecker RCW on Army Installations requires installations to summarize and report monitoring data annually to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service USFWS. This document provides guidance for data summary and reporting of training effects and RCW population monitoring in compliance with this requirement. This guidance has been approved by the USFWS for incorporation into installation endangered species management plans ESMPs by reference or addendum. A primary objective of installation data summaries and reporting is to identify changes in RCW populations as a result of training activities under the 1996 management guidelines or other management activities. This guidance outlines data sources and parameters necessary to evaluate population trends in response to these activities.
