Description: An exploratory investigation in south Georgia indicates that quail seem to prefer freshly burned areas and 1-year roughs as late-summer nesting sites. Bluestem grasses were most frequently used as nesting cover and as nest sites, and optimum herbaceous cover appeared to be around 50 percent. Burning enhanced the condition of ground cover by promoting complexes of plant clumps; these provided adequate screrning and passageways for the quail.
