Abstract: The red-breasted sapsucker (Sphyrapicus ruber) is the most abundant primary cavity excavator in coastal montane forests, and therefore a crucial component of the community. Red-breasted sapsuckers provide nesting and roosting opportunities for many species including the blue-listed northern pygmy owl (Glaucidium gnoma). In 1997 and 1998, as part of the Coastal Montane Biodiversity Project, I recorded the nest tree characteristics for 32 nests of the red-breasted sapsucker at Mt. Cain and Maquilla peak in the high elevation coastal forests of northern Vancouver Island. Nests were located in dead western white pine (Pinus monticola), mountain hemlock (Tsuga mertensiana), western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla), and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) trees. The mean diameter at breast height was significantly greater for nest trees than for random samples of dead trees. Nest trees were significantly taller than a random sample of dead trees. Nest height was significantly related to tree height...
