From the text ... 'The following information described what is considered to be the single biggest problem facing bobwhite quail and other grassland birds throughout a major portion of their range. This is an area encompassing from southern Maryland to northern South Carolina, west across the northern portions of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas, then north through Missouri and back east across Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia. Kentucky and Tennessee lie in the heart of the problem area. The problem is the nearly complete conversion of hay fields, pasture lands and other grassland areas to KY 31 tall fescue cover. This article provides information to help landowners interested in wildlife address this problem.' © 1998 Quail Unlimited, Inc. Abstract reproduced by permission.
