WAYNESBORO: Renfrew Institute Presents – “Reintroducing Letterkenny’s Northern Bobwhite Quail” With Thomas Keller

WAYNESBORO: Renfrew Institute Presents – “Reintroducing Letterkenny’s Northern Bobwhite Quail” With Thomas Keller

 

Thomas Keller

Wildlife biologist Thomas Keller will present “Reintroducing Letterkenny’s Northern Bobwhite Quail” in the Visitors Center at Renfrew Park.

Once a popular game bird and a beloved mascot of the Pennsylvania farmer, the bobwhite quail has virtually vanished from the farms and fields of the Commonwealth. In this program, Keller will discuss the quail’s storied history within the state and talk about what happened to the population and why.

“We’ll cover basic bobwhite biology throughout the year, looking at the four seasons and not only what quail are doing at those times, but where they can be found and why,” Keller said.

He will also take an in-depth look at the bobwhite’s need for vegetative cover, and why that is important. “From there,” Keller said, “we will go over the history of restoration of the quail to Pennsylvania and what’s happening right now—not only here, but throughout the range.”

The program is sponsored by Renfrew Institute, and admission is free.
