Upland Game Birds

Northern Bobwhite Quail populations in Northeast Kansas are falling to a critically low level, and it appears that habitat loss may be an important reason. Farmers and landowners can really help out by using Best Management Practices as explained for Quail in the videos provided by the Missouri Department of Conservation and posted on our website. These BMP's for Quail habitat can help a lot of other species as well, so they are a "win-win" solution to upland bird conservation.

The Northeast Kansas Regional Upland Bird Partnership is working with Pheasants Forever, Quail Forever, Quail Unlimited, the National Wild Turkey Federation and other groups to develop an action plan for restoration of game bird populations in our region.
