Bobwhite Quail Initiative


The Bobwhite Quail Initiative (BQI), a program implemented by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division, is directed at improving quail habitat in Georgia. These improvements will also benefit certain early successional songbird species that are in serious decline, as well as reduce soil erosion and improve water quality. Other beneficial aspects may include economic enhancement to local communities from recreational opportunities associated with improved quail hunting and wildlife viewing.

I am currently the BQI biologist for the East Focus Area (Bulloch, Burke, Jenkins and Screven Counties).  You can contact me at
