Abstract: A management techniques report on elevated quail roosts is provided as Section 5.1.5 of the US Army Corps of Engineers Wildlife Resources Management Manual. The report was prepared as a guide to assist Corps biologists and resource managers in developing roosting habitat for quail in the western states. Topics covered for elevated roosts include design, construction, installation, placement, maintenance, personnel and costs, cautions and limitations, and evaluation. The development of artificial roosting structures for use by the California quail (Callipepla californica) and Gambel's quail (C. gambelii) is described in this report. The structure given primary consideration is a wooden crib elevated on wooden posts and filled with brush. Detailed construction and assembly details, including specification drawings and lists of materials, are provided. Guidelines for placement of quail roosts based on roosting requirements and other habitat needs of target species are given, and appropriate cautions and limitations are discussed.
