Description: We studied habitat use by Mountain Quail (Oreortyx pictus) at four sites in northern California. Vegetative cover types (macrohabitats) were used in proportion to availability. Significant microhabitat variables which distinguished used from available microhabitat structure included proximity to water and tall, dense shrubs. Mountain Quail population densities ranged from 9 to 30 birds per 100 ha; populations with greater densities used a larger range of the available microhabitat structure.
Keywords: habitat use, habitat availability, habitat selection, population density, logistic regression, northern California, mountain quail
