Pleas share far and wide if you care about wildlife

This picture shows you everything you need to know about fall mowing and bobwhites. If you were a quail, which side would you rather live on?

Fall mowing takes away badly needed cover for bobwhites, leaving them exposed for the entire winter. Resist the urge.

This is something we need to begin a conversation about. Many landowners feel they have to make a choice between timber revenue and quail, and most assume it's one or the other.

In a recent presentation, Tall Timbers Research Station & Land Conservancy biologist Paul Grimes showed that managing land for quail doesn't affect timber revenue like most people think. The chart pictured, based on data from a model by Dr. Barry Shiver of SmarterForestry, shows 4 scenarios:

*Min Input means just plant the trees and walk away for 34 years until it's time to harvest.

*Max Rev means periodic thinning done at intervals that generate the most timber revenue.

*Max Rev w/Quail means thinning the timber to densities that are favorable to quail while still generating the most possible timber revenue.

*Max Quail Years means managing the timber in a way that supports quail for the most possible years.

The differences are surprisingly small. Notable is that you can make MORE money and STILL have quail than you can if you just plant the trees and walk away for the next 3 decades.

Timber/quail management is much more intricate than this one chart can show, but we all need to get past the notion that you can't have quail AND generate timber revenue on your property. Even managing for maximum quail habitat, timber revenue can still be substantial. If you'd like to see how this affects your property, email Paul at [email protected].

This is how easy it is to be a part of bobwhite restoration in SC. When you sign up for the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources quail hunter survey, you'll get a link to this form that you'll fill out after each hunt (I do it on my phone when I get back to the truck).

The only other questions ask how many people were in your party, how many hours you hunted, how many coveys you saw and how many birds were taken.

This data is used to help us monitor how well our efforts are working in each part of the state and to help us decide what areas need more attention. It's the easiest way to become a part of our statewide effort to #bringbackthewhistle.

BULLFROG SNAGS QUAIL CHICKS
On our bobwhite research in North Carolina, we recently found a radio-tagged bobwhite chick and a second banded chick eaten by an American Bullfrog. This is no doubt an anomaly but showcases that life as a quail is not easy. We have always said that anything and everything eats a quail bird. Who would've thought that a bullfrog would become a predator of quail chicks?

Late last week this page topped 1500 followers - not bad for the short time we've been live. All the time we get asked "what can I do to help out?" Well, here's you chance and you don't even have to get out of the chair.

We'd like to see this number hit 2,000 followers by July 4th. The more people we can reach, the more land gets converted to bobwhite-friendly habitat and the more birds all of us can enjoy. If everyone who follows this page can get just 1 friend, hunting buddy, neighbor, sibling or anyone else who loves quail to follow the page, we'll blow right past 2,000 followers and hit 3,000, which would REALLY get this project jumping.

Take 30 seconds and share this page on your timeline or with someone you know and ask them to follow and you'll be doing your part for this once in a generation conservation effort.

Thanks for the helping hand, and thanks for following us!

A very interesting read.

This will create real progress to restoring Bobwhite habitat. This makes me happy that I might see wild bird hunting return to this state for the average guy before I die.

Last Wednesday night in Columbia the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy signed a Memorandum of Agreement forming the SC Bobwhite Funding Partnership. Alvin Taylor, Director of the SCDNR, and Reggie Thackston, board member of Tall Timbers, signed on behalf of their organizations establishing a partnership that will allow us to raise funds from corporate and private entities and use them for bobwhite work across the state.

To date, the vast majority of funding for the work we're doing has come from federal and state sources, and while extremely beneficial, the funding is typically restricted in terms of how, when and where it can be used. Having a fund that will allow us to take advantage of unique project opportunities on short notice greatly increases the effectiveness of our work. This is a huge step forward in our mission to Bring Back the Whistle in the Palmetto state and further emphasizes the power of bringing together the resources of so many entities.

Tall Timbers has agreed to use their 501(c)3 status to serve as custodians of the funds raised at no charge. A steering committee will approve all expenditures with the primary requirement that they be used for SCBI-related work. If you're interested in making a contribution, please contact us at 803-734-3940 or [email protected].

I need all of my clients across the Southeast to follow thru with contacting their legislators. Thanks in advance.

People are always asking us what they can do to help. Well, this will cost you next to nothing and only take a few minutes. The Farm Bill that supports a lot of the habitat work being done for bobwhites is scheduled to be reauthorized in 2018 and congress is already working behind the scenes on the conservation components.

The NBCI is leading a charge to make sure that bobwhite-friendly features are included in this bill, and you can help by calling your Senators and Representatives (calls work WAY better than emails) and telling them you support Natives First, Short-term rotational CPR, and Forest burning/thinning initiatives. It's that simple.

You can find out more at https://bringbackbobwhites.org/2017/09/01/beltway-bobwhites-nbci-working-for-bobs-in-next-farm-bill-invites-you-to-help/.

One or two calls get noted, Ten or fifteen calls get something on a representative's radar. Fifty or a hundred calls move it to the top of the list. Let your friends know about this and take a few minutes to get this issue to the top of the list where it belongs.

If you're a wildlife biologist and you'd like to live in SC (maybe you already do?), keep reading. One of our partners, Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, is looking to "further Tall Timbers’ mission and expand the influence of the game bird and fire programs beyond the Red Hills and Albany regions" by hiring a regional game bird biologist for South Carolina.

Tall Timbers is a top-notch organization and we love that they are expanding their program in SC and working with us to Bring Back the Whistle.

What is the difference between a Service Dog, a Therapy Dog and an Emotional Support Dog?
Aren’t they all the same?
The answer is, no!

A service dog is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Tasks performed can include, among other things, pulling a wheelchair, retrieving dropped items, alerting a person to a sound, reminding a person to take medication, etc.

Emotional support dogs and therapy dogs are not service animals under Title II and Title III of the ADA. The work or tasks performed by a service dog must be directly related to the individual’s disability. It does not matter if a person has a note from a doctor that states that the person has a disability and needs to have the dog for emotional support. A doctor’s letter does not turn a dog into a service dog.

While Emotional Support Animals or Comfort Animals are often used as part of a medical treatment plan as therapy animals, they are not considered service animals under the ADA. These support animals provide companionship, relieve loneliness, and sometimes help with depression, anxiety, and certain phobias, but do not have special training to perform tasks that assist people with disabilities. Even though some states have laws defining therapy animals, these animals are not limited to working with people with disabilities and therefore are not covered by federal laws protecting the use of service animals.

It is also the handler’s responsibility to make sure that their service dog is always under control while in public places. Businesses DO have the right to deny access or ask the handler to remove the service dog from the business if they are jumping up on people, barking repeatedly, growling at other people or wandering away from the handler. Having the title of “Service Dog” is not a free pass for unacceptable behavior in public for the dog.
