Additional Information

The Bobwhite Quail is one species of wildlife that has been helped by the white man's coming to Texas. As early settlers spread across the state, they created millions of acres of excellent quail habitat where virtually none had existed.

Early agricultural practices resulted in small fields covered with moderate to heavy stands of weeds mixed with domestic crops and miles of weedy field borders and overgrown woody fence rows.  Overgrazing by livestock resulted in an invasion of weeds and low growing woody plants.  This all served to spread bobwhite quail populations.

Since World War II, changes in land use and farming methods have reduced the amount of usable bobwhite habitat which has reduced the population.

Today, with the exception of the far western portion of Texas, bobwhite quail are found in reasonable numbers from the Panhandle to the Rio Grande Valley.

This image is from the Charles Beckendorf Texas Wildlife book. The original was an acrylic painting on canvas (1992) and the size is approximately 14 X 11 inches.  The total edition size of this print is 500.

Color Reproduction

Beckendorf color reproductions are developed using four color process printing on fine white paper. This advanced technique utilizes separate color plates for each of the primary colors, plus black. High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
