So I reported the banded Red-cockaded Woodpecker we saw at Weymouth Woods-Sandhills, and I got a report back a couple days ago. Here's what I got:

 

Martina,

Thank-you for your observation. This bird is a second year female banded in southern pines by Sandhills Ecological Institute. Kerry Brust is the lead of this nonprofit organization and has addressed your observation below.

Hi Jess,

 

That is so funny because I just observed this bird at Weymouth Woods SNP in the last hour! (address 1024 Fort Bragg Rd, So Pines). I read the photo as WHDGDG (not DGDGWH) PUB5 - this would be a second year female (SY-F) banded in Sept 2013 as a juvenile who remains in her natal cluster SOPI 1. What is also cool about her is I saw a black rat snake a month later in the cavity I caught her in and I was worried she may have been snake food!

 

You can forward this to observer and BBL, unless you want me to follow up.

 

Kerry

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED

 

Caveats: NONE

 

Hey K--any ideas on this bird? From the photos it appears to be DGDGWH-PUAL, however it is the Kelly green and it doesn’t really look purple, it looks magenta. DGDGWH is 2007 female from 367 (NEA) and DGDGLP is 526 SAL which would be an AHY 2003 female--neither seems likely and the PU looks magenta....which I know steve has used, but we never use it. Any thoughts?

 


Pretty cool! It was very nice to see WHDGDG PU5!
