Northern Bobwhite

As I was driving down Fabacher Road today several plump Northern Bobwhite scurried quickly across the road. I quickly grabbed my camera and jumped from the truck in hopes of getting a picture. I was fortunate that a few Bobwhites bringing up the rear had not disappeared into the field and was able to get their picture. Note how well these guys blend in with their environment.

The female Bobwhite is on the bottom right side of the picture and the male is to her left..

The Nothern Bobwhite is a Near Threatened species due to its rapid decline in recent decades.

I rarely see Northern Bobwhite but it is always a pleasure when they show up.
