The Alabama red-cockaded woodpecker is a small, black and white woodpecker that lives in pine forests. These woodpeckers get their name from the red stripe that runs down the center of their black head. They are one of the smallest woodpeckers in the United States, weighing in at around 3 ounces.
Alabama red-cockaded woodpeckers live in family groups of around 5-8 birds. These groups are called “clans.” Each clan has a territory that the birds defend against other clans. The birds use their sharp beaks and claws to drill small holes in tree trunks to nest in. They also use these holes to store food.
Alabama red-cockaded woodpeckers are endangered due to habitat loss. Their pine forest habitat is being destroyed by development and deforestation. These woodpeckers need large areas of mature pine trees to live in, and there are not many of these forests left in the United States.
