Abstract

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.
