Northern bobwhite quail and other grassland bird species have declined significantly over the last several decades.

It wasn’t all that many years ago when there was talk here about folding the ODNR Division of Wildlife into the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The bill was met in Kentucky with the same vigor as the notion was in Ohio: It was a bad idea.

Holman Lake good fishing for trout and more in Pennsylvania’s Perry County

When it comes to stocked trout lakes, many are smallish, not so tiny as to be ponds, but hardly large expanses of water either. Holman Lake – alternately called Little Buffalo Lake – is different. At 88 acres, the centerpiece of Little Buffalo State Park in Perry County is at least big enough you can’t see it all from one end to the other.

Star Watch: Interesting facts about Mars, the Red Planet

We can only wonder if Mars’ menacing, red color may have prompted the ancient Greeks to name it after their God of War. Actually, scientists tell us that the planet’s red color is due to the presence of iron oxide, silicon, and sulfur in its dusty surface layers.
