Abstract

Prevalences of poxvirus in a population of California quail (Callipepla californica) at the E. E. Wilson Wildlife Area, Oregon, were determined from 1982 through 1987 and compared with previously published results on prevalences in this population from 1975 to 1979. Poxvirus was present in 19 of 89 quail collected. Prevalences ranged from 6% for immature females to 41% for immature males. Prevalences were lowest during summer and fall and highest in winter and spring. Differences in the seasonal prevalences may be related to the seasonal dispersion pattern of quail.
