Bobwhite Nesting Success on Two Selected Areas with Different Population Densities·

Bobwhite nesting success data was collected during a five year (1967-71) study on an area with a high population density (2 + quail/acre) and a three year (1969-71) study on an area with an "average" density (4 acres/ quail). Despite the differences in population density and the intensity of habitat management, the season nesting success on both areas averaged approximately the same, 17.5 percent on the high density area (based on 1,412 nests studied) and 20.8 percent on the "average" density area (based on 313 nests studied.
