Title: Does Time Change Everything? Recent Research on the Northern Bobwhite

Speaker: Rachel Smith, M.S. candidate, Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, Texas A&M Kingsville

Description:  The Northern Bobwhite has been an iconic gamebird for centuries across much of the eastern United States. They are an important indicator species for the health of native grassland areas. Unfortunately, these birds have been on the decline since the 1960s across much of their range. However, south Texas is one of their last strongholds and has even seen an increase in bobwhite numbers. The talk will focus on general bobwhite ecology in the south Texas plains and on the new methods being used to track bobwhite populations in the area.  Specifically, Rachel will be presenting results from her own research examining bobwhite response to landscape recovery after various grazing treatments.
