Abstract: The East Kootenay Trench of British Columbia was surveyed for nesting Lewis’s woodpeckers (Melanerpes lewis) in June and July of 1997 and 1998. Forty-seven active nests were found in 1997, and 85 were found in 1998. Nest trees were mainly burned ponderosa pine and Douglas-fir snags. Nests occurred in 4 habitat types: burned coniferous forest, open mature ponderosa pine forest, grassland with isolated veteran ponderosa pines, and riparian cottonwood. Distribution of nests was clumped indicating that preferred habitat was not randomly distributed. In 1998, 59% of nests found were in burns that had suffered stand-destroying fires and 19% were in open, mature ponderosa pine forest with an obvious history of frequent fires. The remainder were found mainly in remnant ponderosa pine vets or riparian black cottonwood. Only a few hundred hectares of open mature ponderosa pine forest which is still suitable for breeding Lewis’s woodpeckers exists in the East Kootenay Trench...
