You may know that native grasses and colorful wildflowers can also help stabilize and improve soil, reduce erosion, and provide quality rotational grazing for cattle. But, diverse vegetation is also important for attracting and maintaining quail populations.
In fact, quail need both diverse and special habitat. Biologists have found that "bobwhites" need a certain configuration of plant material in a particular amount of area to survive and thrive. For best results, a managed area of approximately 40 acres with plants that offer the right food, cover and nesting area can bring the quail's call back to your land.
