The article focuses on the decreasing population of quails in Florida. There are several reasons for the declining population of quails. Loss of habitat for the northern bobwhite quail is one of the factors for its sharp decline in the Southeastern region. Wildlife conservationists say that improved land management practices will have to be implemented to restore the species. In Florida, continued loss and modification of habitat through changing land management practices and development threaten the future of quail.
