Fig. 2.9. Territory scale forest type and seral stage availability compared to location of pileated woodpecker cavity trees at Hinton, Alberta, 1993–98. The + symbol indicates use significantly greater than abundance and the – symbol indicates use significantly less than abundance, Bailey 95% confidence intervals. ........................................................................ 34 Fig. 2.10. Pileated woodpecker cavity tree size (dbh class) compared to available trees for live deciduous trees and dead trees at Hinton, Alberta, 1993–98. The + symbol indicates use significantly greater than abundance and the – symbol indicates use significantly less than abundance, Bailey 95% confidence intervals. ........................................................................ 35 Fig. 2.11. Distribution of pileated woodpecker cavity entrance heights compared to distribution of decay indicator heights at Hinton, Alberta, 1993–98. ............................................................. 36 Fig. 3.1. Weekly survival of radiotagged adult pileated woodpeckers (n = 33) at Hinton, Alberta, Data are 3 years combined from June 1, 1993–June 1, 1996. June 1 was selected as week 1 because this was the approximate date that eggs hatched and adults were radiotagged..... 53 Fig. 4.1. Monthly % occupancy of pileated woodpecker cavities in forests near Hinton, Alberta, 1993–98. Darkest bar indicates significantly (P < 0.05) higher than expected occupancy, grey bars indicate use not significantly different than expected, white bars indicate significantly lower than expected occupancy, assuming uniform yearly occupancy. Sample size is shown above each bar. ...................................................................................................................... 63 Fig. 4.2. Monthly occurrence of species (dark boxes) and fresh evidence of species (light boxes) found inside pileated woodpecker cavities in forests near Hinton, Alberta, 1993–98. Occurrence was defined as an animal observed inside, entering, or leaving a cavity, and fresh evidence was defined as droppings, hair, feathers, fecal material, nest material, eggs, or other indirect evidence of use............................................................................................... 1
