Title: A Modification of Copeyon's Drilling Technique for Making Artificial Red-Cockaded Woodpecker Cavities

Author: Taylor, William E.; Hooper, Robert G.;

Date: 1991

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. SE-72. Asheville, NC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southeastern Forest Experiment Station. 31 p.

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

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.
