We report packed-cell volume and values of aspartate aminotransferase, calcium, creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, total protein, triglycerides, and uric acid in plasma of 154 scaled quail (Callipepla squamata) captured during February-April 1999 and 2000 in Cochran County, Texas. Values for packed-cell volume, calcium, total protein, and uric acid were in the normal range for birds. Aspartate aminotransferase, creatine kinase, and lactate dehydrogenase were elevated as a result of stress experienced while in the trap.

Se presenta el volumen de contenido celular el y los valores de la aspartato aminotransferasa, calcio, creatina quinasa, lactato deshidrogenasa, proteínas totales, triglicéridos, y ácido úrico de 154 codornices escamosas (Callipepla squamata) capturadas durante febrero-abril de 1999 y 2000 en el condado de Cochran, Texas. Los valores del volumen de contenido celular, calcio, proteínas totales, y ácido úrico se encontraron en el rango normal para aves. Aspartato aminotransferasa, creatina quinasa y lactato deshidrogenasa se elevaron a consecuencia del estrés mientras las codornices estuvieron en la trampa.
