Northern Bobwhite

A round-bodied, ground-dwelling bird, the Northern Bobwhite with a distinctive call that literally say “Bob White”. Highly streaked and cryptic, the Northern Bobwhite is patterned in shades of brown varying from rufous, to chocolate, to tan. A light-colored throat and eyebrow band are distinctive marks. Males and females appear similar, but males have less streaking on their breasts, and their eyebrows and throat bands are white instead of tan.
