Red Cockaded Woodpecker

Red-cockaded Woodpecker Surveys

The red-cockaded woodpecker (Picoides borealis) is an endangered species with the most distinguishing feature being the black cap and nape that encircle large white cheek patches. Today it is estimated that there are about 12,500 red-cockaded woodpeckers, representing about 1% of the original populations. The red-cockaded woodpecker makes its home in mature pine forests in the Southeast region of the United States (AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, NC, MS, OK, SC, VA and TX).

Projects on Federal lands must comply with the Endangered Species Act. Foraging Surveys and Absence/Presence Surveys are used to determine if the Red-cockaded woodpecker will be affected by a proposed project. Reagan Smith Energy Solutions is permitted by the USFWS to perform RCW Foraging and Absence/Presence Surveys throughout the United States. We have extensive experience in Eastern Texas. For more information on the Red-cockaded woodpecker, please contact Monica Smith Griffin at msmith@rsenergysolutions.com.
