hSTRACT.-htomatk cameras were used to record adult red-cockaded woodpecker (pi-coides borealis) nest visits with food for nestlings. Diet of nestlings on or near an old-growth longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) remnant in southern Georgia was compared to that in longleaf pine stands established on old farm fields in western South Carolina.
