Dr. Lenny Brennan, professor and C. C. Winn Endowed Chair for Quail Research at Texas A&M University-Kingsville, was recently named a Fellow of the American Ornithologists’ Union (AOU). He was elected by the board. 

He also was honored by the National Bobwhite Technical Committee (NBTC) with its award for Individual Achievement. This award is presented to recognize an individual’s overall contributions to bobwhite research and/or management during a career.

NBTC specifically cited Brennan’s positive national influence on quail management and his support of the NBTC and the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative within the wildlife profession during his 33-year career.

In addition, they recognized Brennan’s research on six species of quail across nine states, his more than 170 scientific publications and more than 105 extension publications, many of which established the course for today’s quail management and research activities.

Brennan is a part of the animal, rangeland and wildlife sciences department and the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, both in the Dick and Mary Lewis Kleberg College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Human Sciences.
