The Red-cockaded Woodpecker is a good bird. They are endangered and endemic to the US which is part of the allure. However, rarity aside, they are cool birds. They hang out in social groups so if you find one, you probably will find a bunch.
Here is one from Holly Shelter where they can be found pretty reliably. A couple years ago "target shooting" became popular in Holly Shelter and all the Long-leaf Pines were getting shot up. I saw guys in there that looked like they were preparing for World War III or maybe the Zombie Apocalypse. Luckily after some of the shouting and screaming from birders like myself, they shut down the target shooting in there. I hope to see a positive affect on the RC Woodpecker.
