The whistling "bob-white" call of this quail was once quite common, but due to loss of grassy fields, the birds have lost much of their habitat. I photographed this one in an aviary at Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park in Florida. The last time I heard the call of a Bobwhite was in the Smoky Mountains earlier this year.
