Northern Bobwhite Quail

Scientific: Colinus virginianus
Norwegian: Nordkrattvaktel

One of the goals of the Norwegian Ridge Birding and Nature Trails is to establish several Bobwhite habitats to once again have the Northern Bobwhite Quail a regular resident of our area. The Norther Bobwhite Quail are 8-11 inches and weighs approximately 6 ounces. They lives in open fields and pastures and are year-round resident. They nests in depression on the ground in forests and grasslands. They eat insects and seeds
