Northern Bobwhites are small game birds that live across parts of the southeastern United States and into parts of Mexico. They are significant as both game birds and as research subjects, due in part to their successful reproductive abilities. There are a whopping 22 subspecies of Northern Bobwhite. The birds are named for their whistle-like call; they are also known as Virginia Quail or Bobwhite Quail.
