By Request – Northern Bobwhite


On one previous post I invited anyone to submit requests if they happened to want to see photos of one particular bird.  So in yesterday’s post, Carolyn Rutherford asked if I had some images of some Northern Bobwhites.  So without further adieu, here is a selection of images of the Northern Bobwhite (Colinus virginanus) that I captured over the past three yearsAll were photographed at San Angelo State Park, San Angelo, Texas.  Carolyn, enjoy.

  1. The Bobwhites were my Grandma’s favorite bird. She used to love to imitate them and call them into the yard for feed. I have a painting I did back in July of a bobwhite..will post on my website. I agree with Jim, I never seen them in trees..great photos..

  2. Thank you Bob , I just love these little fellows. I used to hear them when I was a child and thought they were so neat. They always look so elegant and proper. Just like little ladies. Thank and they are so beautiful.. Carolyn Rutherford

  3. Thanks for these, Bob. I know the Bob White voice, but I really don’t think I’ve really seen one before. And I don’t know why. Must have been a favorite of my mother’s. 🙂 Thanks for the photos, Bob. 🙂
