    We report the occurrence of gang-brooding (i.e., communal brood-rearing) in a population of Northern Bobwhites (Colinus virginianus) in western Texas. Combinations of adult quail (2 mated pairs, 2 males, and 2 females) were observed with broods on several occasions. During the two-year study...
