The Red Cockaded Woodpecker

The Red Cockaded Woodpecker (Picoides borealis) 7"-8" tall with a black cap and nape with two small red streaks on each side of the cap (a cockade) - often visible only on adult males. Its back is barred in black and white, and the birds have white cheek patches. Red Cockaded Woodpeckers are on the Federally endangered species list and make their home in old growth pine forests in the Southeastern US.

"We can in fact only define a weed, mutatis mutandis, in terms of the well-known definition of dirt - as matter out of place. What we call a weed is in fact merely a plant growing where we do not want it."

E.J. Salisbury, The Living Garden, 1935
