Red-cockaded Woodpecker nest discovered on Dixie—the first in 50 years!
Red-cockaded Woodpeckers are nesting on Dixie Plantation in Jefferson County, Florida. Eight sub-adults were translocated to the property last fall, and a nest with four eggs was discovered today by Woodpecker Conservation Specialist Rob Meyer. This is the first nest on the property in over 50 years! We’ll be scheduling a special trip to band the young once they appear and reach an approach age (probably in early June). The restored woodpecker population on Tall Timbers also reached a new high in 2019—16 nests underway at this point with about half the nestlings banded.
