Repopulating the Bobwhite Quail


Emily Archibald, left, and John Kaiser of ODNR’s Wildlife District Five on Tuesday told Hillsboro Rotarians about efforts to repopulate Bobwhite Quail in the Fallsville Quail Heritage Area. Kaiser and Archibald said that dwindling natural cover, as well as the blizzard of 1978, has led to the quail’s decline, but by working with area landowners and partnering with other organizations increased population is being accomplished. Archibald said that landowners can take advantage of personalized information on land management in several areas, from stream corridors to pastures, prairies, woodlands, and urban landscapes. For more information, call 937-372-9261 or 937-347-0925, or visit http://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov.
