Has anyone seen any young birds yet or is it still to early?
I've heard lots of opinions about whether the birds start laying based on temperature vs. hours of daylight. I'm finding lots of quail but they only starting pairing up roughly 10 days ago.

I've seen some broods of woodcock while planting food plots
Just received a good report today from Morgan County. Landowner saw a hen grouse with about a dozen chicks on the edge of the tornado.
Seeing lots of quail but no little ones yet.
Got a report today about a grouse brood observed last week in Rowan County. The hen had 7 chicks with her. The majority of chicks should be about 2 to 3 weeks old as of June 4.
2 years, that didn't take long.
Just whistling and pairs so far - and like others have said it started not that long ago.
Report from Elliott County yesterday. A hen grouse with 15 chicks! I guess it is possible that she laid that many eggs, but it is more likely that she inherited chicks from a second brood somehow. Now if they would all just survive until November 1.
Talked to friends of mine from Wisconsin today, they have had a lot of rain and high water. My forester buddy said he has only seen one brood this year with 3 chicks and things don't look good for this fall. On a positive note he said thing were better in Michigan and has heard reports of several brooks. Anybody want to share their Michigan honey hole before all the cabins are booked.
