This graph illustrates the seasonal change in habitat occupancy by southern New England's Red-bellied Woodpeckers. Populations shift subtly but significantly from closed canopy forest (cover values approaching 3) in summer to open canopy forests in winter (see Contribution 17 of the Contributions series for details).
