Draw A Bird, August 2022

The bobwhite is a type of quail that lives in open fields and brushy boarders. Unfortunately, the bobwhite population has decreased by almost 85% over the last many years, thought to be due to the use of pesticides and habitat loss.

These ground birds roost in “coveys” of 3 or more in a close-packed, outward-facing circle, their tails pointed toward the center, providing them with protection and warmth. If you’ve ever heard a bobwhite call, you’d know it right away because it sounds like they clearly are saying “bob-white.”

How has your August been? It is hot and humid here, but in the next month or so I am looking forward to cooler autumn temperatures. Take care ❤
