This 20-year-old stand of loblolly pines was thinned the year after an understory burn. As part of the WBWF’s forestry stewardship plan, warm-season grasses were sewn to produce a viable edge habitat to benefit wildlife. Soon afterwards, and according to plan, Northern Bobwhite were calling this location home. So good to hear the males once again making their springtime, namesake calls. (Turn the volume up on your device to hear the calls.)
