You will definitely hear one before you will see one. The Bobwhite, or quail, has a very distinctive call that sweeps upward in pitch. It sounds very much like the Bobwhite is saying its' name. If you live in the Midwest this sound is probably very familiar to you.
Like so many other birds, the Bobwhite's plumage provides camouflage from predators and intruding humans that get too close. Have you ever seen one of these captivating birds? Have you ever heard their call?
