North Hempstead Town officials release 2nd annual batch of tick-eating quail

More than 70 quail were set free at Hempstead Harbor Shoreline Trail on Tuesday, and in the fall officials will conduct tests to determine what impact the quail are having. North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth said that quail are "our superheroes in the fight against ticks" and Lyme disease. (Credit: Newsday / Khristopher Brooks, Yeong-Ung Yang)
