Acorn woodpeckers (Melanerpes formicivorus) in southeastern Arizona exhibited two different types of social organization: one of highly cooperative and resident groups and another of birds that migrated and formed only temporary male-female pairs during reproduction. The occurrence of both patterns in the same population indicates a high degree of social flexibility in this species.
