Northern Bobwhite Quail
Scientific Name: Collinus virginiahus
Did you know?
This small game bird comes from North and Central America, the West Indies and Cuba. They get their name from the male’s familiar two-tone call, which sounds like he is calling ‘’bob-white’’.
They can be found in open grass areas where they can forage for wood, as well as brush, tall grass and other cover where they can hide from predators such as birds of prey.
They feed on mainly seeds as well as fruits, other plant matter and snails.Book Tickets
