The Northern Bobwhite Quail is a small, quick, alert game bird with elegantly striped and speckled plumage. Distinguishable from the white throat and stripe over the eye, the Bobwhite Quail is native to North America and its plumage is effective camouflage in dry, grassy plains or snowy hills. The name "bobwhite" comes from it's characteristic whistling call and is one of the most familiar quails in Eastern North America because it is frequently the only species of quail in its range.
Like most game birds, the Northern Bobwhite is shy and elusive. When threatened it will crouch and freeze, relying on camouflage to stay undetected, but will flush in low flight if closely disturbed. Introduce Bobwhite Quail to your property for effective, natural insect control or use Bobwhite Quail for breeding, egg production or hunting.
