Virginia’s Bobwhite Bulletin, September 2012

The Bobwhite Bulletin is your electronic update on the status of Virginia’s Quail Recovery Initiative (QRI), a cooperative effort between several agencies, groups, and individuals to restore early successional habitat and the Northern Bobwhite quail population of Virginia. Our exciting work is on‐going and this newsletter will highlight selected thoughts, ideas and projects from our five Private Lands Wildlife Biologists (PLWBs) and three QRI Team Leaders.

Over the past year we’ve made even more progress in developing quail habitat throughout
the Commonwealth. From the Eastern Shore to Lee County in the West, we continue to see habitat projects being completed on the ground, most especially in our six quail priority areas. At this point we are beginning to see “quail quilts” of habitat pieced together, providing excellent areas for quail recovery to occur, and we hope that the best is yet to come.
