Help Protect Red-headed Woodpeckers
When Red-Headed Woodpeckers were declared an endangered species, the BPBA -- with the help of Dr. Elizabeth Gow (Birds Canada, University of Guelph) and Olivia Wilson (Ecosystem Technician) -- began research on finding nests and breeding locations.
With over 27 volunteers doing point counts and cavity nest searches, they confirmed nine breeding locations in the Bruce Peninsula. They also found three nests after extensive searches and numerous hours of early morning work. Over 122 species of birds were observed, including 11 species at risk.
In order to continue the project next year and make more progress, funds are needed. If you wish to donate to this project, please use the form below.
