A well trained bird-dog, such as a German Short-haired Pointer can be used
to census quail and Button-quail particularly Red-chested & Little
Button-quail, and Ground Parrots. Probably more effecient that a rope pulled
over grass because the dogs can range further. Make contact with the Gun Dog
Field Trials Assoc.
I can speak with experience, but alas not recent experience, as I am now
down to an old Red Cattledog, inherited from my father-in-law and it has few
skills in finding birds.
