Marcus Asher is AGFC's quail biologist.
I am not only seeing and hearing more quail than in years past, I am also seeing significantly more cottontails everywhere I go. I have to stop our Boston Terrors from following us up to the barn where for the first time in years, I have seen several adult and a number of young bunnies.
Are birders seeing or hearing more early successional or early-mid successional habitat species than usual? More Grasshopper Sparrows, Prairie Warblers, Blue-winged Warblers, Bell's Vireos, Bachman's Sparrows etc. than in previous years?
