7 day Red Cockaded Woodpecker chick on Flickr.
This was the first Red Cockaded Woodpecker baby for the 2012 nesting season in Croom WMA of the Withlacoochee State forest. He was banded at 8 days old! Red Cockaded Woodpeckers are on the Federally endangerd species list and are monitor very closely. I monitor this cluster, Cluster 18 as a Forestry Volunteer.
