A small chicken-like bird of the eastern United States and Mexico, the Northern Bobwhite is an important game bird. It is extensively hunted in some areas. Its loud call announces its name.
•Medium-sized quail.
•Runs on ground.
•Small round head with slight crest.
•Round body with very short tail.
•Colored reddish and brown.
•Pale throat and eye stripe white in male, buff in female.
•The Northern Bobwhite is divided into 22 different subspecies. Females show little variation among the different forms, but the males can vary dramatically. Some bobwhite from Mexico have little banding across the chest, are uniformly rufous, and have all black heads
