More Woodpecker Boxes

A friend read my previous post about artificial nest boxes for Red-cockaded Woodpeckers and forwarded the following press release:

Ithaca, NY - The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has taken a note out of the pages of Red-cockaded Woodpecker conservation plans, and have rolled out a new artificial nest cavity, specifically designed to provide nestling habitat for the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker. This photo shows the new "Giant Pecker Boxes" before they are shipped to the darkest reaches of the southern United States for implementation.


  1. Geee, I hope pterodactyls don't find these first and crowd out all the Ivory-bills!...
