It was also aimed to identify important characteristics of Dendrocopos nesting trees. This study is the first to report about foraging and nesting preferences of the middle spotted woodpecker in the south-eastern part of its distribution range. The information gained may lead to guidance advices during forest management practices to identify and save important trees and areas for the middle spotted woodpecker as well as for the particular habitat where the study was conducted.
