Northern Bobwhite – Jan 3 birding list


When Ann and I arrived at San Angelo State Park yesterday (Sunday) morning, we saw this Northern Bobwhite (Colinus virginianus).   Actually, there were two, but as they scurried away I was only able to capture one.  There is also another species of quail in this area; Scaled Quail (Callipepla squamata).  I haven’t seen one in quite awhile, but I am sure they are here, lurking about in the tall grass somewhere.
