As wildlife biologists, we often help people manage habitat for quail on their property. Every property is different, but areas with good quail numbers have one thing in common: quail-friendly habitat structure. The plant community on the property is especially important, but what plants do you need? It's great if you know plant species beneficial to quail, but if you're not a botanist, don't sweat it. Just learn to recognize and manage for structure. If you've got the right structure, chances are the right plants will be present. This publication describes the critical habitat components required by quail.
