l Describing the life history of

-j Suitable nesting cover is diffi
t cult to find early in the nest

nests are destroyed by predators. l
some quail begin nesting activi-i
ties before spring growth has
produced adequate greenery for
Hankla- recommends planting
patches of perennial legumes
such as sericea and shrub lespe
