Red-headed Woodpeckers Successfully Fledge Two Birds

21 Jul

Dear Golfing Guests of Maddens Resort,

Thank you for your interest and your Red-headed Woodpecker sightings this summer.  My name is Judd Brink a
volunteer for the Red-headed Woodpecker Recovery Project. On my last visit last week I watched a pair from hole #8 on The Classic successfully fledge two birds. Fledge means to successfully raise a bird to the point where it is able to leave the nest. This is obviously the first step to helping repopulation the species so we are very excited. Enjoy your summer at Maddens Resort!
