“Where Have All the Quail Gone?” A publication by The Texas Quail Conservation Initiative identified several reasons behind quail decline. The major one is habitat loss through land fragmentation. Quail prefer to travel through their range on the ground and not through the air. Quail use native bunch grasses for cover and nesting. Native wildflowers and bunch grasses are drought tolerant, beautiful and also supply nutrients perfectly balanced for wildlife. Let’s work together to restore our quail populations by planting sustainable native grasses & wildflowers. Good for Turkeys!
