Test of a Population Estimation Technique for Red-cockaded Woodpeckers

A population estimation technique for red-cockaded woodpeckers (Picoides borealis), originally developed in the South Carolina Coastal Plain, was tested in the Georgia Piedmont. The technique provided an accurate estimate within 8% of the true population size. The survey procedures have been tested in the major habitat types occupied by red-cockaded woodpeckers and should provide valid population estimates throughout the species' range.
