Abstract:

The work reported here describes the project Range-Wide Meta-Analysis of Red-Cockaded Woodpecker Foraging Habitat Suitability. This project was conducted under a cooperative agreement between the Engineer Research and Development Center - Construction Engineering Research Laboratory ERDC-CERL and The Curators of the University of Missouri. The primary objective of this project was to support conservation and recovery of a federally listed endangered avian species, the red-cockaded woodpecker RCW Picoides borealis. We aimed to identify the range of habitat conditions, as opposed to a single condition, that constitutes high-quality foraging habitat for RCWs, which will support recommendations for new RCW foraging habitat guidelines. This project has two components l studies of the relationship between foraging habitat and RCW fitness across the species range, and 2 studies of foraging habitat selection by individual RCW groups on Eglin Air Force Base.
