Upland hatch
« on: July 05, 2021, 01:50:59 PM »
There doesnít seem to be many quail in the Crescent Bar area this year My feeder is usually full of new birds by now. How about other areas? Anybody seeing quail or pheasant broods?

Quail at my place had a second (at least) hatch. The the earlier ones were flying in June, and the new guys were about the size of golf balls 2 weekends ago.

I was over around Grand Coulee couple weeks ago and saw several broods of small ones.

Itís great to hear people are seeing birds. Maybe those free roaming cats around me are the problem.

Generally speaking if there's no rain during the spring upland bird hatches do well, as dry as it was this year I think most upland bird populations should benefit.

I have been seeing lots of small birds(grouse and chukar) lately. Not so sure that the delayed 2 week season opener(from Sept 1st) will really benefit the birds that much.

The quail around my place just had a 3rd hatch. Chukar had a 2nd hatch about 3 weeks ago. Turkey hatch was not as good up here.
