Bird sanctuary


    Dog gone

    Bobwhite quail are back even though their delicacy, Wooly croton or Doveweed, has receded as a result of the mowing. In my own quail hollow preservation bird sanctuary among the pines, I whistled up a fine specimen flushed by my hounddog companion. The sound of wings beating the air on rise is unmistakable. Heard no May calls of bob-white for 2 years and wondered about the disappearance, but never would say destruction of habitat was a possibility.
