said, the already well-known bact
that bobwhite quail are affectionate
toward young and their mates, espec
ially in family groups.
Destruction of quail eggs in the
field by various enemies is the great
limiting factor in the natural repro
duction cf quail. Skunks, field rats,
snakes, oppossums. j unfed roaming
dogs, crows and others destroy eggs
and break up many nests in the
Sandhills region but one of the worst
offenders is the ant which enters the
freshly pipped quail egg. The ant
tackles the chick which is nearly ex
hausted from trying to pick its way
into this world and results in the
chick ceasing its work to free itself
from within the shell. Death follows.
There is no shortage of ants in this
legion and they constitute a difficult
problem with which to cope.
