That is wonderful to hear that the park is only mowed twice a year! A gold star for the park director.

Yesterday I heard one calling in one of our city parks. The grass in this park has been allowed to grow. It's quite "wild" and has native wildflowers in it. I've been in contact with the director of the park. He said he gets calls from people who want to see the park mowed. But he tells them there are enough parks like that already. This one is going to stay natural. They will mow it twice a year, and after nesting.



Across the border in Moffett, a pair flew across the road in front of me, from a cornfield, just on the edge of town. It was a very nice thing to see.

Remind me who the contact person is at the AGFC who helps manage
quail..? I know I had it recorded somewhere, but its long since gotten
lost in the ether.

Thanks
