Helicopter count confirms low abundance

By March 4, 2019 Articles

Last Thursday’s helicopter count was about what I expected . . . sad. Each Mar and Nov we fly the same 52 miles’ worth of transects. We counted only 5 coveys (all bobwhites). Only one covey had more than 8 birds . . . it had 11. Thus, it was our 2nd lowest Spring helicopter count. We only counted 2 coveys in Mar 2013.
