Overview

From eastern Texas the remnants of a once-magnificent forest, nurtured by moisture from the Gulf of Mexico, extend a thousand miles to the Atlantic shore and as far north as Chesapeake Bay. This unique woodland gave birth to two woodpeckers, one large--the ivory-billed woodpecker, which has not been sighted in over ten years and which is almost surely extinct--and the other small--the red-cockaded woodpecker, which may yet be saved.
