Winter Feeding Habits of West Texas Desert Quail
Circle Ranch biologist Mark Tyson and Son Adjust a Game Camera at Quail Feed-Block Station, July 2010
In July, 2010 Mark Tyson and Louis Harveson completed the very-interesting paper posted above. The subject is the winter-feeding habits of Scaled and Gambel’s quail. I am fairly certain it is the first such study to be done on desert quail in far-West Texas. We know very little about these animals in our desert grasslands.
Our quail research is continuing at Circle Ranch.
This is a working draft and my thoughts appear below. This version will be replaced with Mark’s final draft so stay tuned.
