“These Are Not Your Grandpa’s Quail”: Modern Bobwhite Quail Habitat Management

July 19, 2023 @ 11:30 am


On July 19, we will talk about a bird whose call is a beloved sound for many of us. The northern bobwhite aka bobwhite quail (Colinus virginianus) is the only quail native to eastern North America. We hear its call much less often now because of a steep decline in the bobwhite quail population, mostly due to habitat loss.

Marc Puckett (Small Game Projects Leader and Private Lands Biologist Manager for the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources) will discuss the bobwhite quail and how to manage its habitat in multiple scenarios so that these birds can thrive.

The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions during the webinar. You can submit your questions beforehand (during registration) for Marc, or ask them live.

There will be a quick update on PRISM activities at the beginning of the meeting.

Blue Ridge PRISM’s Summer Meeting is a free, online event. Those who register will receive a copy of the recording.

We hope you can join us!
