Northern Bobwhites

This past winter we saw quite a few of these Northern Bobwhites here in Wellington.  According to the map of their range, they are a bit out of their territory here, but there has been a covey of about a dozen of them running around our yard, and other neighbors have noticed them, too.  They are funny, fat birds, similar to quail.  It's amazing how close we (or the horses) can get to them before they scamper or fly away. The past few days, we've heard them calling their unique call.  LISTEN HERE AND READ  It's been fun watching them this year, I will miss them in Guffey!  (But, in Guffey there are lots of Pinon Jays and Mountain Bluebirds!)
