Twelve pairs of Red-cockaded Woodpeckers were translocated to the Angelina National Forest. Five breeding pairs produced eggs/nestlings within the first breeding season after translocation. Clutch initiation dates for all five pairs were later than those of resident breeders. The observed delay in reporductive timing by translocated woodpeckers may have resulted from a variety of factors.
