Snag Trees

Nature Loop

In this area, you will find dead or dying trees that are still standing. They are called ‘snag’ trees. This area is a great place to see many different kinds of woodpeckers, such as the downy woodpecker, hairy woodpecker, red-bellied woodpecker, and northern flicker. Woodpeckers search for insects by using their beaks to make holes in the snag trees. Later, these holes often become nesting places for other birds, like the Louisiana waterthrush, prothonotary warbler, Carolina chickadees, eastern bluebirds, and white-breasted nuthatch.
