The Northern Bobwhite Quail is a very familiar sound for those of us living in the Eastern United States. Many summer evenings their characteristic whistling call Bob-White is heard frequently but these stocky little quail aren’t seen very often. They are very well camouflaged and tend to hide. They scurry between cover and I felt very lucky to spot this one running along this dirt path (of course he was chasing a female!)

I came upon this baby chick taking what looked like it’s first steps with trembling legs. It was crossing a gravel road! I could hear the frantic loud calls of two Northern Bobwhites very near so I assume this is a Northern Bobwhite baby chick. I am hopeful that the family was reunited.
