Description: A modification to Copeyon's drilling technique for making highly effective artificial cavities for red-cockaded wookpeckers is described.The changes virtually eliminate the possibility of making a mistake in constructing cavities and reduces the learning time to less than 2 weeks.The basic change is the use of a 3-inch access hole that allows the relative position of the pith to be used to avoid breeching the sapwood and replaces routing the cavity with a single, precisely drilled hole.
Keywords: Picoides borealis, endangered species, Hurricane Hugo.
